Sometimes, when we least expect it, we realize we're not such great spellers after all

Is it wrong of me to laugh out loud at this?

<<<<<Seasonal Finalists are up in GD >>>>> "Spring"

Congratulations to the finalists, I picked the top 7 because we had 21 entries, otherwise every other photo would have been in the finals.
I feel one third is appropriate.

Enjoy, please vote, please kick the thread.

Thank you

Not Borowitz - but very fine satire nevertheless. A LTE about Richard Burr/Winston-Salem, Journal

SACRIFICE

I must say that when it comes to service to the nation, if a dispute arises between Sen. Richard Burr and those who have fought this nation's wars, I must come down on the side of Sen. Burr (“Burr hits back at veterans groups,” May 28). After all, he has been in government since 1994, a full 20 years, while some of those veterans he is criticizing have not served their nation nearly as long.

And, of course, Sen. Burr has had to divide his time between Winston-Salem and Washington, obviously "hazardous duty," unlike those veterans who divided their time between the United States and Iraq and/or Afghanistan. I cannot not fathom how anyone could fail to recognize the sacrifices Sen. Burr has made for our country, as opposed to those who have fought in its wars - wars authorized with the votes of said senator, at great peril to himself, no doubt.

And now these same veterans have the nerve to criticize Sen. Burr for not supporting them. Whatever is this country coming to when veterans can criticize a person like Sen. Burr, who has sacrificed so much for our freedom and security and they have sacrificed so little?
