_____________________________________________________ Never express yourself more clearly than you are able to think. --- Niels Bohr (1885 - 1962) _____________________________________________________ Airman Jones was assigned to the induction center, where he advised new recruits about their government benefits, especially their GI insurance. It wasn't long before Captain Smith noticed that Airman Jones was having a staggeringly high success-rate, selling insurance to nearly 100% of the recruits he advised. Rather than ask about this, the Captain stood in the back of the room and listened to Jones' sales pitch. Jones explained the basics of the GI Insurance to the new recruits, and then said: "If you have GI Insurance and go into battle and are killed, the government has to pay $200,000 to your beneficiaries. If you don't have GI insurance, and you go into battle and get killed, the government only has to pay a maximum of $6000. Now," he concluded, "which group do you think they are going to send into battle first?" _____________________________________________________ © Ruth DeFoor No shortage of Yellow Warblers this year.

Philadelphia father who 'made up' home invasion charged in 4-year-old son's shooting death

The father of a 4-year-old boy who was shot and killed inside their North Philadelphia home has been charged with a number of offenses including involuntary manslaughter. Twenty-eight-year-old Edward Williams was arraigned early Friday morning. Along with involuntary manslaughter, the multiple charges include corruption of minors, endangering the welfare of children, false report, and possession of instrument of crime with intent. His bail was set at $2 million. Philadelphia police said Williams fabricated a story that his son was shot during a home invasion at their residence on the 2100 block of North Lambert Street. Officers arrived to the home around 1 a.m. Thursday where they found Williams holding his 3-year-old child. The 4-year-old son was found in an upstairs bedroom unconscious and unresponsive. The child was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. In a news conference on Thursday afternoon, police said Williams "made up" the home invasion story. They said it appeared the child found the gun in a closet, was curious, and decided to play with it. They said it appeared the 4-year-old shot himself with the gun. According to authorities, Williams was sleeping at this time. Police believe the 3-year-old sibling was present at the time of the shooting because he was the one who alerted Williams of what happened. Police said the weapon does not appear to be stolen, but it wasn't registered to the father. Police said Williams most likely fabricated the home invasion story because he had seven prior arrests and should not have been in possession of the firearm. The child's mother was at work at the time of the shooting, police said. Edward Williams is a felon with many gun related convictions and is not supposed to have a gun.

"Is there a woman here in need of assistance ?" asked
the medic from the ambulance as he knocked on the
door.

"Yes." replied the man opening the door. "It's my
wife. She has an electric vibrator lodged in her."

"Well, we'll have to transport her to the hospital."
the medic replied. "Those things can be tricky to
remove."

"Never mind." said the husband. "We have an HMO which
doesn't allow Emergency Room visits except for life
threatening incidents. But for now, could you at least
turn it off ? It's interfering with the TV."
