A dose of common sense advice
Placeholder Image
From the mailbag: • One sage e-mails that in today’s world we need a good common-sense celebrity like Will Rogers. Killed in a 1935 plane crash, he had advice that almost always made sense: -- Never slap a man who’s chewing tobacco. -- Always drink upstream from the herd. -- The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back into your pocket. -- Good judgment comes from experience and a lot of that comes from bad judgment. -- Letting the cat out of the bag is a lot easier than getting it back in. -- You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks. -- Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks it was called witchcraft. Today it’s called golf. -- Never squat while wearing your spurs. • A Florida senior citizen drove his brand-new Corvette out of the dealership.
