I keep having this recurring nightmare. Hillary gets elected and I get replaced as national icon by my evil twin, Samantha.

David B. McCormack, Esquire
Buist Moore Smythe McGee P.A.


"Ever since the twins died life has seemed so complicated".

I realize this caption may be misinterpreted so i want to clarify: My intent
is in no way to make light of the horrible tragedy that was 9/11. My point is
that i feel we are a country that even today is still struggling to come to grips
with its impact and figuring out how to best move forward. If you feel I will
be misunderstood and decide to not put this out there i'll understand.

Entry 1

When I asked everyone to support the Patriots, I did not mean the New England Patriots!

Entry 2

Doc, I'm troubled, even though I am very patriotic, I am, at heart, a New York Giants Fan!

Entry 3

Doc, what I am struggling with is the irony with the pay of the true patriots, (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, etc.) as compared to the ones from New England.

Keith Rowland
