      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

      > common people or what you're doing because you just took my dog!
