Two cents worth

It occurred to me, as the numbers rolled by this evening – 3,527 – that maybe each American life lost should be worth at least one cent from each of us. $35.27 in this case.

I think each and every real American should pony up that amount and send it to the candidate they believe will do the most to end the madness in a manner to their liking.

Since I’d like to put in my two cents worth, I guess I’ll send $70.54 to Charlie Brown or maybe Hillary or Obama. Or all of them.

See a penny in the street? Remember a soldier.
