In this week’s contest, the NRA, quantum physics, and Lance Armstrong.
The NRA is claiming huge membership increases as well as spike in the sale of assault rifles.
Did we have an assault weapons binge?
Just the thought should make all of us cringe.
Can we trust NRA,
to be honest when they,
Are the voice of a lunatic fringe?
Barriere, B.C., Canada
Teachers with guns? – No thank you.
It’s an idea we need to eschew.
For let’s not forget,
There’d be a new threat;
Teachers can go psycho too.
Quarterbacks come and quarterbacks go.
It ain’t rocket science- it’s just a big show.
So why shed a tear,
For the life and career,
Of the prayerful Timothy Tebow?

Experiencing quantum reality
Nick’s achieved the impossible feat –
Weaned himself from the classical teat.
Now he knows where it’s at,
With Schrödinger’s Cat,
But needs help in crossing the street.
Boulder Creek, Calif.
In a tale of pro cycling woe,
Doping brought down a mighty hero.
But one detail I find,
Really frazzles my mind,
Who knew Oprah still had her own show?
Fort Wayne, Ind.
