Population Reference Bureau study shows that the suicide rate for older (65+)
white males is
almost triple the national average. That’s almost 8 times the rate for women. Speculation is that
white males “lack the resilience and coping mechanisms that women and other ethic groups
have” and “they are less apt to seek help for depression.” TAKE THE TEST , TAKE ACTION
FROM THE LAUGH TRACK from Karen Paine New re: Her drug problem
I had a
drug problem when I was young; I was drug to church on Sunday morning. I
was drug to
church for weddings and funerals. I was drug to family reunions and community socials no matter
the weather. I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults. I was also drug to the
woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not
speak with respect, spoke ill of the teacher or the preacher, or if I didn't put forth my best effort
in everything that was asked of me. I was drug to the kitchen sink if I uttered a profane four-letter
word. (I know what Lye soap tastes like). I was drug out to pull weeds in mom's garden and
flowerbeds and cockleburs out of dad's fields. I was drug to the homes of family, friends, and
neighbors to help out some poor soul, who had no one to mow the yard, repair the clothesline, or
chop some firewood. If my mother had ever known that I took a single dime as a tip for this
kindness, she would have drug me back to the woodshed. Those drugs are still in my veins and
they affect my behavior in everything I do, say, and think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack,
or heroin, and if today's children had this kind of drug problem,
CAKE or …..from Larry
A husband is at home watching a football game when his wife
Honey, could you fix the light in the hallway? It’s been flickering for weeks now.
He looks at her and says angrily fix the lights now? Does it look like I have “G.E.” written on my
forehead? I don't think so.
Fine, then the wife asks, well then, could you fix the fridge door? It won't close right.
To which he replied, fix the fridge door? Does it look like I have “Westinghouse” written on my
forehead? I don't think so.
Fine, she says then you could at least fix the steps to the front door? They are about to break.
I'm not a carpenter and I don't want to fix steps. He says, does it look like I have “Ace Hardware”
written on my forehead? I don't think so. I've had enough of you. I'm going to the bar!!!!
So he goes to the bar and drinks for a couple of hours. He starts to feel guilty about how he
treated his wife, and decides to go home. As he walks into the house he notices that the steps
are already fixed. As he enters the house, he sees the hall light is working. As he goes to get a
beer, he notices the fridge door is fixed. Honey, he asks, how'd all this get fixed?
She said, well, when you left I sat outside and cried. Just then a nice young man asked me what
was wrong, and I told him. He offered to do all the repairs, and all I had to do was either go to bed
with him or bake a cake.
He said; so what kind of cake did you bake?
She replied, hellooooo...do you see “Betty Crocker” written on my forehead? I don't think so!
