Darrell Scott Testimony – Remembering Columbine

What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful. Continue reading Darrell Scott Testimony – Remembering Columbine

Did Peter O’Toole Cause All the Problems in the Middle-East?

The following is another guest article by Dan McNeil of Cartridge World on South Campbell in Springfield MO.

This article may be intense for some however I found it a interesting read and should make you think.

Things your burglar won’t tell you

While on my kick of security I came across this on my hard drive, I really don’t remember where I got it from but it is true.

1. Of course I look familiar. I was here just last week cleaning your carpets, painting your shutters, or delivering your new refrigerator.

2. Hey, thanks for letting me use the bathroom when I was working in your yard last week. While I was in there, I unlatched the back window to make my return a little easier.
