Metro Sound Off
My recent article about Physicians vs. Gun Owners apparently drew criticism from one Metro reader. Apparently this peace loving, gun-hating, country music fanatic disagreed with the number of gun owners and accidental gun deaths listed in the article, claiming the number stated was too low. In an effort to maintain the integrity of the Metro, I researched the facts by going to www.gunsafe.org and below is a summary of the claims and the actual facts: My article claimed "The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000." My article also claimed "The number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups) is1,500." The FACTS...
Fraction of U.S. residents who own firearms?...28%
United States population...273,000,000
Total number of gun owners in U.S. is 76,400,000
Fatal firearms accidents per year...1,100
So, before this reader's heart goes "Bang-Shang-A-Lang", he should take a little "Sugar-Sugar" or "Honey-Honey" to lighten up a bit and get the twang out of his butt.
- Defending the Second Amendment in the South
ED NOTE: You just gotta hate taking the twang out of your butt!
The Metro Editor cuts out way too much. I don't think a little porn is a big deal. You people at the Metro are prudes!!!
ED NOTE: Just to show that we at the Metro don't mind getting a little risque, here is a photo of the most popular position used in bed.

|Joke Of The Month|
On a cold Christmas Eve, two starving bums are walking through a alley when one of them sees a dead cat. He runs over, sits down and starts to eat the cat, tearing the meat from its limbs. He says to the other bum, "Hey, I know you're hungry, too. Why don't you eat some of this cat?" "Hell no!!!" replies the second bum, "That cat's been dead for days, he's all stiff and cold and smelly!" The first bum says, "Okay, suit yourself," and continues to eat everything, skin, muscle, guts, all but the skeleton. A few hours later as they are walking down the street the first bum says, "Oh, I don't feel so good. I think there might have been something wrong with that cat." And just then, he pukes up a huge puddle of rotten cat flesh and guts with stomach bile mixed in, all half digested and looking like mush. The second bum sits down next to the puddle and says, "Now you're talkin'! It's been months since I had a WARM meal!!!"
