        The Shepherd

        >

        >

        > A shepherd was tending his flock in a remote pasture when suddenly a

        > brand-new Jeep Cherokee appeared out of a dust cloud, advanced toward

        > him and stopped.

        >

        >

        > The driver, a 24-year-old young man wearing a Brioni suit, Gucci

        > shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses and a YSL tie, leaned out of the window and

        > asked our shepherd, "If I can tell you exactly how many sheep you have

        > in your flock, will you give me one?"

        >

        >

        > The shepherd looked at the young guy, then at his peacefully grazing

        > flock, and calmly answered, "Sure."

        >

        >

        > The young man parked his car, whipped out his notebook computer,

        > connected it to a cellphone, surfed to a NASA page on the Internet

        > where he called up a GPS satellite navigation system, scanned the

        > area, then opened up a data base and some Excel spreadsheets with

        > complex formulas.

        >

        >

        > He finally printed out a 150-page report on his hi-tech miniaturized

        > printer, turned around to our shepherd and said, "You have here

        > exactly 1,586 sheep!"

        >

        >

        > "Amazing! That's correct! Like I agreed, you can take one of my

        > sheep," said the shepherd.

        >

        >

        > The shepherd watched the man make a selection and bundle it into his

        > Cherokee. When he was finished the sheepherder said, "If I can tell

        > you exactly what your political persuasion is, where you're from and

        > who you work for, will you give me my sheep back?"

        >

        >

        > "Okay, why not," answered the young man.

        >

        >

        > You're a rich Republican from Palm Beach and you're working for the

        > re-elect Jeb Bush campaign," said the shepherd.

        >

        >

        > "Wow! That's correct," said the young man"! How did you ever guess

        > that?"

        >

        >

        > "Easy," answered the shepherd. "Nobody called you, but you showed up

        > here anyway. You want to be paid for providing a solution to a

        > question I already knew the answer to. And, you don't know squat about
