Common sense?

To the editor:

Hopefully by now you've noticed shoes were not designed for human beings. Especially women's shoes. We were born with a perfect foot but sometime over the ages shoemakers turned from practicability to style causing a new career to exist, namely podiatry and also a lot more ailments namely bunions, corns, calluses, to name a few. Oh, and blisters are not to be forgotten. Common sense should tell us that the wider the span of your toes would give us better balance, but no we land up forcing four inches of toes into a 2 1/2-inch space. As we know it can be done but to what end. As we reach the golden years we worry more about falls and rightly so, but I believe if shoes were form-fitting there would be a lot less falls. And who would believe that the pill we take to cure an ailment has side effects that are worse than the ailment. That takes some soul searching.

I bought two pair of name brand shorts the other day, same shorts, same size, same stock number. One fit, the other was three inches off in width. My fault, I didn't look to see where it was made. They were made in Egypt probably between gunfire.

Notice how the education system is going down hill. Is it a coincidence that is started with the introduction of computers and other electronic devices. I know a student can get an answer from a computer but what if there's no computer around, would he be able to think for himself. And what a wonderful way to brainwash a person. Taking orders from a computer. It looks like the government is doing that now but who's pushing the buttons.

And now some trivia that I remember seeing as a kid. Look at the back of a five dollar bill, at the top of the building you will find two lines of states. Twenty some in all. Something you do on a rainy day. On the front you'll find a skeleton key in the seal. As sure as Barbara Streisand being the singer of the century as far as range, variety and longevity.

I think we're to the point now where we'll have to rely on write-in candidates since we know that existing ones are all corrupt. So cram your brains and see if you can come up with a candidate with morals. That should be a welcome change. Cause we know who ever is waiting in the wings for the parties is going to be the same ol', same ol'.

Lets see are we in Lee County or Grant County, its getting confusing. Cheer up, things are going to get worse.
