HITLER, CLAY-LISTON AND 26 LAUGHS

It's Monday morning, a little more than 300 days until Christmas.  Not much happened in history today.  Adolf Hitler in 1932 became a German citizen.  In 1964 Clay (before he became Ali) fought Liston.  Watch the entire circus:  the weigh-in when Cassius Marcellus went berserk, introductions of Sugar Ray Robinson and Rocky Marciano, the fight, with Joe Louis providing color, and the surprising ending, for Clay was a 7:1 underdog.

Not sure where he got it, and I think I've seen this before, but David Ikegami sent me the following.  A good way to start the week:



An Elementary School Teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!

1.
Don't change horses
until they stop running.

Daylight Saving Time.
4.Never underestimate the power of

5.You can lead a horse to water but
how?
6.Don't bite the hand that

16.A penny saved is

17.Two's company, three's
the Musketeers.
18.Don't put off till tomorrow what

19.Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and
you have to blow your nose.
20.There are none so blind as
Stevie Wonder.
21.Children should be seen and not
spanked or grounded.
22.If at first you don't succeed
get new batteries.
23.You get out of something only what you
see in the picture on the box.
24.When the blind lead the blind
get out of the way.
25.A bird in the hand
is going to poop on you.
And the WINNER and last one!
26.Better late than
pregnant.
-- Equal opportunity means everyone will have a fair chance at being incompetent.    Laurence J. Peter (1919 - 1988)
