      Not a headline...


      For several years, I get pretty regular spam from an entity called "Free Sandwich".  It is always encouraging me to click on links that purport to be offers of things like this week's 20 free footlongs! From Subway!


      Free Sandwich cracks me up, even after a few years.  I kind of look forward to this mail.


      And yes: it is a spam sandwich.


        Too much time in Hawaii, SRL?

          An update on Sgt. Tom Kennedy- you will be pleased to know he is now on an aircraft carrier in the gulf so cannot come by my house in person to pick up the sports car I am advertising for sale, but he will send his agent to pick the car up if I will give him my bank account information so ha can transfer funds to my account.

              I received that one too!  I almost believed it, because it appeared to be sent by someone I sort of know - but not really - a runner in the area, in fact.  I sent a response asking why he would ask me, who hardly knows him, and he just sent back some sort of generic response about how desperate he was...

            "Not to touch the Earth, not to see the Sun, nothing left to do but run, run, run..."

              Just got this.  It has some fancy links for me to click.
