    <Disclaimer>I'm SURE this is going to get some folks here all riled up, so let me preface this by saying..."lighten up, Francis"</Disclaimer>




    One night, George W. Bush is tossing restlessly in his White House bed
    He awakens to see George Washington standing by him Bush asks him,
    "George,
    what's the best thing I can do to help the country?"
    >> "Set an honest and honorable example, just as I did," Washington
    advises, and then fades away

    The next night, Bush is astir again, and sees the ghost of Thomas
    Jefferson moving through the darkened bedroom. Bush calls out, "Tom,
    please! What
    is the best thing I can do to help the country?"
    > > "Respect the Constitution, as I did," Jefferson advises, and dims
    from sight.

    The third night sleep is still not in the cards for Bush. He awakens to
    see
    the ghost of FDR hovering over his bed. Bush whispers, "Franklin, What
    is
    the best thing I can do to help the country?"
    > > "Help the less fortunate, just as I did," FDR replies and fades into
    the mist.

    Bush isn't sleeping well the fourth night when he sees another figure
    moving in the shadows. It is the ghost of Abraham Lincoln Bush pleads,
    "Abe,
    what is the best thing I can do right now to help the country?" Lincoln
    replies,
    > > "Go see a play."

    That's my opinion so lighten up francis.

    To be literal, your joke about the death of a sitting president is a violation of your user agreement at TC. Joking about the murder of a president is illegal like it or not.

    Point taken, though you were not the one I expected to be bothered by a meaningless, old joke.

    Mods, feel free to delete this or ban me. Neither will upset me in any way.

    Fair enough...like I said, I know you didn't mean this with any weight. I have very firm ideas about the respect of the office no matter who is sitting. I did take my oath of enlistment under Clinton and as much disdain as I have for his decisions he was my president.

    sorry if I over-reacted
