Opening Arguments

Dear God

This can't possibly be controversial -- Louisiana legislators want to put the Ten Commandments into a state law, but they don't want to offend Jews or Protestant or Catholic Christians, so they're spending all this time trying to get the wording just right. Yes, legislators have actually taken it upon themselves to rewrite the Ten Commandments. I wonder if they might end up with something like this:

1. Only me, OK?

2. I mean it, not even a photo or a line drawing of somebody else.

3. And only talk nice about me.

4. While you're at it, take a day off a week just to think about me.

5. Don't blame your parents for everything, you putz.

6. Just put the gun away and go stand in the corner and count to 10. You weren't put on this earth to remove anybody else from it.

7. Leave your neighbor's spouse alone.

8. And all his stuff, too.

9. You're no good at at lying -- your eyes get shifty and your palms get sweaty and everybody can tell -- so just knock it off.

10. Oh, and back to the neighbor. Don't even WANT his stuff. It is HIS stuff. Go out and get your OWN stuff, bearing in mind Nos. 6, 7, 8 and 9 while your getting it.

That is really funny, Leo. I see a new 'round-the-world-and-back e-mail coming on....
