  Something to think about on a lazy summer day...

The story is told of five men gathered in the general store one hot summer day, arguing about which is the "right" religion. It was a fruitless discussion because no one could agree. Finally, they turned to a wise old fellow sitting silently in the corner---

He said, "When the cotton is picked, there are several ways to get it to the gin. We can take the northern route which is longer but the road is better; we can take the southern route which is shorter but filled with chuckholes; or, we can go over the mountain because it's more direct, eventhough it's more perilous. When we reach the gin, though, the man doesn't ask which way we came. He simply asks, 'How good is your cotton?'"

Enjoy your summer!
