Don't Do Comments on the Do
It has come to our attention that certain individuals are not happy with those who comment on the appearance of Representative Stephanie Herseth. They say it's not fair to her because nobody does the same concerning males in the Congress. The Holabird Advocate is among the group that must plead guilty to this offense. But speaking for ourselves, and only ourselves, we feel a bit of explanation is in order. Because Representative Herseth is a female, we expect her to look her best because she is representing South Dakota. Because Senators Thune and Johnson are male, all of us here at the Holabird Advocate are just glad they don't show up to work without shaving in t-shirt and jeans. Is it a double standard? Possibly! We shall police our comments concerning this matter and promise to do better in the future.
By the way, it has been reported that an online service called "Face Book" or some such thing has a group consisting of both genders who may be warm for the form of Senator Thune. Oh well, at least they spell the name right.
Cader May Not Be Coming Later
Because of severe weather concerns, Doug Hinkle and Noel Pothast went to Rapid City early, so Harold and Mary Hinkle will not have to be in such a hurry to pick up Cade Hinkle and take him to the Ponderosa. In fact, Cade may not come back with them anytime soon. They are still planning to celebrate Christmas with beef, so nothing important has changed.
"What Do You Want For Christmas?"
A poem sent to "Dear Abby" from a couple who have too much stuff.
So many of you asked us (since Yuletide's drawing near)
"What do you want for Christmas? What can we give you this year?
If we say, "We want nothing!" you buy something anyway,
So here's a list of what we'd like; believe now what we say:
Pajamas for a little child, food to feed the poor.
Blankets for a shelter, and we ask a little bit more--
Perform good deeds and let us know, or volunteer your time.
These last are worth a fortune, and they needn't cost a dime.
We have to many things now, vases, candles, tapes and clocks.
We have our fill of garments, ties, underwear and socks.
Candy is too fattening, crossword books we've more than 20.
We don't need trays or plates or cups, and knickknacks we have plenty.
We've no walls to hang more pictures; we have books we've not yet read;
So please take what you'd spend on us and help the poor instead!
Just send a Christmas card to us and tell us what you've done;
We'll open them on Christmas Eve, and read them one by one.
It won't cost as much for postage as a package sent would do,
You'll need no wrapping paper, ribbons, ink or glue.
And we'll thank God you listened to what we had to say,
So we could be the instruments to help someone this way.
