      Farmer Brown - UNC Grad

      A local newspaper was doing a story about
      how housing developments were eating up
      farmland, putting the livelihood of local
      farmers in jeopardy. They interviewed
      Arthur Brown, a well-known and respected
      farmer who lived on the outskirts of town
      and a graduate of UNC. He had received
      numerous high-dollar offers for on
      particular field which bordered a nearby
      housing development.

      The photographer took a picture of Farmer
      Brown standing on the controversial piece
      of land. The picture appeared in the story
      and mentioned Farmer Brown as....

      The Evil That Men Do

      In the wake of the tsunami that claimed more than
      220,000 lives, some people were asking hard questions.
      Faced with such devastation, they wanted to know,
      how was it possible to believe in a good, all-powerful

      Now stories are leaking out about what's going on in
      the aftermath of the tsunami. The reports are sketchy
      and anecdotal so far, but they already have people
      asking another, equally important, question: Is it
      possible to believe in the goodness of man?

      Famous Quotes

      "America was born a Christian nation. America was born
      to exemplify that devotion to the elements of righteousness,
      which are derived from the revelations of Holy Scriptures.
      Part of the destiny of Americans lies in their daily perusal
      of this great book of revelations. That if they would see
      America free and pure they will make their own spirits
      free and pure by this baptism of the Holy Spirit."
      --President Woodrow Wilson

      For Christians, the life and death of Jesus are the ultimate
      expressions of love, and the supreme demonstrations of
      God's mercy, faithfulness, and redemption. Since Christ's
      miraculous Resurrection on Easter, more than 2,000 years
      ago, Christians have expressed joy and gratitude for this
      wondrous sacrifice and for God's promise of freedom for
      the oppressed, healing for the brokenhearted, and salvation.
      --President George W. Bush

      "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this
      great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians;
      not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this
      very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum,
      prosperity, and freedom of worship here."
      --Patrick Henry (original member of the Continental Congress)

      A panda walks into a diner, sits down, and orders
      a sandwich. He eats the sandwich, pulls out a gun,
      and shoots out the restaurant's windows.

      As the panda stands up to go, the owner shouts,

      "Hey! Where do you think you're going? You just
      shot my windows out and you didn't pay for your

      The Missing Pieces

      Our three-year-old grandson is turning
      out to be quite an engineer. He loves to
      figure out how things work and he loves
      to build things that do. When he's at
      Grandma and Granddad's house, he
      likes to play with our Lincoln Logs.
      He had built a couple of cabins in
      the middle of our living room floor
      the other day when we noticed that
      he had stopped and he was just lying
      on his tummy with his head cradled
      in his hands, studying the pictures
      on the Lincoln Logs container. When
      his mom asked him what he was
      doing just staring at that container,
      he said, "There are some pieces
      missing here." And he began to
      point out exactly what pieces
      were pictured on the can but
      missing in front of him.

      Female Friends

      Jill and her (recent UNC grad) friend Linda were
      chatting over coffee.

      Says Linda, "I've been experiencing a strange
      and painful side effect from coffee. I'm fine
      when I drink it black, but if I use cream, or
      sugar, or both, I get a stabbing pain in one eye."

      Linda then took a sip of her coffee. "Oww!"
      she cried. "There it goes again!"

      Says Jill,

      "Linda, sweetie.....

      take the spoon out of the cup!"

      The Dying Dragon

      There is a familiar scene in many fantasies and great epics:
      when it comes time for the hero to slay the dragon or beast
      that is his enemy, he inflicts upon it a mortal wound. The
      one reading or watching the story longs to breath a sigh
      of relief at this point when it grows clear that the dragon
      will die. But when a strong beast is wounded, it becomes
      violently angry. The wounded dragon seems to lash out
      with ten times more strength and fury, causing us to
      wonder if the hero will survive the conflict. Although the
      dragon is dying, it rears up, determined to take others
      down with it, wounding as many as it can before it breathes
      its last.

      Human Traffickers Prey on Tsunami's Most Vulnerable Victims

      Before the debris settled on the devastating Southeast
      Asia tsunami of December 26, reports of human
      trafficking emerged from the region. With the death
      toll now higher than 200,000, tens of thousands still
      missing, and entire costal villages decimated, it's hard
      to imagine things getting much worse for the nations
      involved. Yet as incomprehensible as it seems, evidence
      is mounting that child trafficking gangs are preying
      on the regions thousands of children who are orphaned
      or separated from their parents...

      F.S.C. 0 - A.S.C. 1000

      On one side of the issue are those who don't understand
      how anyone could disagree with the use of unviable
      fetal tissue. They just can't fathom why there would be
      resistance to enabling Superman to walk again. And on
      the other side are those standing so close to the dis-
      cussions opposing the devastating and abhorrent
      practice of abortion that the real topic of discussion
      is lost.

      Both groups have a blind spot. The curious thing
      about blind spots is that you can't see them. Let's
      look at this from a sports perspective. It's the first
      half. And the score? Read the board.

      Fetal Stem Cells 0 - Adult Stem Cells 1000s

      A couple were driving to the airport in stony silence
      since they had had an argument and she was not
      really interested in flying in her husband’s aircraft
      that afternoon. They drove past a meadow in
      which several goats, cows, horses and sheep
      were grazing. He asked sarcastically, “Relatives
      of yours?” “Yes!” she quickly replied “In-laws.”
