“But wait, there’s more”

Sue, who is usually as slug-like as I am in the morning, bounced into the bedroom yesterday A.M. waving the L.A. Times saying, “but wait, there’s more.”

Stories she read excerpts from included the following. After each story, she chirped, ‘but wait, there’s more!’

Two little old ladies. ‘They took out large insurance policies on two transients, then ran them over.’

(This is nearly as stupid as jailed Congressman Randy Cunningham whose enormous paper trail of fruadulent real estate transactions led to his imprisonment. Don’t play hide-the-money when the paper trail is obvious.)

Hayden. ‘Not only did he deny the spying was illegal, he invented it.’

(And Congress of course smiles and does nothing.)

English is our new national language. ‘What does this mean? We don’t know. They say it’s symbolic but…’

Huge law firm indicted for kickbacks to clients. ‘Is anyone honest out there any more?’

(The new Arthur Anderson, methinks. This law firm will cease to exist rather shortly as clients flee The firm itself was indicted, not just the partners, a highly unusual move.)
