A tree while driving home drunk . . . he blames the bartender
If your children
Are brats without
manners. . .you blame TV , If your friend is shot by a deranged madman . . . YOU BLAME GUN MANUFACTURERAnd if a crazed person breaks into the cockpit and tries to kill the pilot while flying at 35,000 feet, and the passengers kill him instead . . . The mother of the crazed deceased.,blames the airline ,
I must have lived too long to understand the world anymore
