This is not news. It's an article from the Sydney newspaper that tells on of the slickest stories of how people can be handled during wartime when they are endangering a very important link in an intelligence program.

I guarantee that if you read it you will come away with a grin on your face, and that goes double for Ron, who I think could use some good news of some sort for a change.

Here's the link:

If you read it, let us know how you felt about it.


Tom Garrett 14 hours, 46 minutes ago on 206 A contest on stealing of election signs?

One of the teens at Payson High was arrested for stealing an election sign. She has not yet been charged with a crime, and I hope it is handled as a juvenile matter, but I do think that the youngster should be punished in a way that sets an example.

We all need to remember that we can best say how we feel at the ballot box and, not in some childish or angry prank even though we may oppose the candidate named by some sign.

But most important in what I read in yesterday's Roundup was the fact that, "Tea Party President Darlene Younker said she learned of a social media campaign that challenges people to steal as many Trump signs as they can."

I wonder what kind of person would be so dumb as to actually go online and establish a contest for theft? It doesn't make any difference whether you are promoting the theft of election signs or the theft of six packs from Seven 11, theft is theft.

I hope somebody follows this up and prosecutes the dummy who started that contest, don't you?


Tom Garrett 14 hours, 50 minutes ago on 189 Are national anthem protests hurting the NFL TV ratings?

Believe it or not when I was young in New York City we not only didn't lock the front door, we didn't even have a key to the house. The font door had one of those Yale locks that saved you from having to use a key to lock it; there were two "buttons" in the door that you could push when it was open. One locked it; the other unlocked it. One day someone must have pushed one of the buttons while going out and we were all locked out of our own house. Luckily, my brother Frank got a screwdriver and managed to insert it between the door and the trim and unlock it.

The point is, of course, that no one locked his door in those days.

It isn't just natural change that has caused our crime problems. It's also laws that have made too many things criminal acts. Those laws, just like Prohibition, have created illegal businesses for low lifes who had to work for their money before. That, and overpopulation, are the main causes of the crime we see, which is after all for profit, isn't it?

"You don't always know what a person's handicap is."

That's true. You only have to watch me walk and see the limp and you know what mine is, but even so I can walk a long distance.

"The one that started this waited until she had been married 11 yrs. then had two children. Was that a smart idea?"

Sometimes — I don't know why — women feel that they have no choice.

"Az. and Calif. were making sure you didn't have any plants. Didn't want citrus going from one state to another. Afraid they may be carrying some kind of bug or something."

I remember that.

"Is there something wrong with that?"

Why aren't slow kids who do the best they can with what they've got congratulated like anyone else who does the same?
