Strange world

The Covington News - - Opinion -

Some folks would tell you that they think the world has turned up­side down. The fol­low­ing two items might have you be­liev­ing the same as them.

This past week a theft of a dif­fer­ent kind hap­pened in Mur­ray, Utah.

A thief en­tered the Smiths Food and Drug store, went straight to aisle 16, the pet food aisle, and pro­ceeded to grab a big juicy bone into its mouth. The thief in this case had four legs, not two.

The store man­ager con­fronted the bold thief and de­manded that he drop the bone. The thief and the man­ager stared at each other and the thief broke for the door and safety. We pre­sume that the thief en­joyed his Christ­mas snack. In Afghanistan, for years the CIA has been pay­ing big cash to war lords for in­for­ma­tion.

The only prob­lem was when the war lords con­verted that bribe money into big­ger tents or the lat­est camel, their bud­dies knew they were squeal­ers and then the war lords were not treated kindly by their friends.

Now our CIA is re­ward­ing the war lords with the” lit­tle blue pill.” The only prob­lem with this is now the ter­ror­ists are looking for the in­for­ma­tion-giv­ing war lords who are sport­ing the big­gest smiles.
