My "extraordinary, substantial" $1 legal settlement

By Vinton Today · March 14th, 2018
Someone did me a big favor a while ago, and they bragged in legal documents about how it took them "seven years of hard work and diligent efforts." I will tell you about those diligent efforts and the outcome, in their own words. This "tremendous" effort produced an "extraordinary" outcome, particularly in "substantial" and "meaningful" results for me, particularly in the areas of "economic" and "monetary" gain.

This past weekend, we laid our aunt to rest. I've always been a stickler on claiming people as "such and such" if they aren't actually whatever title you put on them.

Who knew the Tooth Fairy was SO Important to the Economy

By Vinton Today · March 1st, 2018
Now in the last 10 years of wading through email, I don't remember EVER seeing an article about the Tooth Fairy and how it's a gauge of how the economy is going. But here it is. "Tooth Fairy Payouts Hit Hard Times Midwest average drops to $3.44 per tooth, 20 percent below national average. JLooks like the Tooth Fairy tightened her money bag after an all-time high payout in 2016.

By Dean Close, Editor I discovered a new way to drive safely in winter weather: Drive slowly in the snow until the morons in front of you who don't drive at an appropriate speed or safe driving distance cause a 70-car pile-up, and then sit on the blocked Interstate 35 until the snow melts, and authorities clear the road enough to allow you to turn around and go the other way and take a detour.

Dear Editor, Florida School shooting: We continue to learn of the failings of law enforcement both local and Federal. Also we have learned that School security personnel were present, at least one and perhaps as many three other armed Sheriff Deputies, but they did not act We do know this - A coach/teacher acted protecting Students with his body - sacrificing his life, also there were Junior ROTC students acting to herd students to safety.
