if John over at the birthsite would agree to the same reasonable shill fee
that the Hannibal attractions pay me, I would have been glad to have
mentioned it in my posting. Here is a complimentary one, John:  (I'll drop by later for a six

    Regarding the car/ferry idea, it has been several years since the ferry
at Canton last sank. Should it happen again, please be advised that I also
practice personal injury and wrongful death law in both Illinois and
Missouri. If the ferry starts going down in the middle, swim east before
drowning because Illinois juries give bigger verdicts. Please print out this
e-mail and leave it with a loved one within one degree of consanguinity or
pin it to your shirt before the crossing so your decedents will know to hire

held before a secret tribunal on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific, and the
point is you might never, ever get to go to F*****a and get to see the
    Or something like that.
