C2 “And the people and politicians demanded that something be done.”
C1 “Something was done? Did I miss something?”

Bumper stickers of the week:
“I don’t believe in colleges and universities. I believe in libraries because most students don’t have any money. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money. I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.” Ray Bradbury (1920 – 2012).
“Isn’t making a smoking section in a restaurant like making a peeing section in a pool.” George Carlin
