|Letters To The Editor|
I have really enjoyed reading the "Metro" tonight. I've laughed at the funnies and cried as I read about the little boy in Phoenix. Thanks, to everyone at the McCarty Metro. Please keep it going -Steven D. McCarty
ED NOTE: Thank you Steven dropping by
Your last page gets me every time. Hope I can help add tid bits from time to time. -Chuck Pottenger
ED NOTE: Chuck. Your article on the Dateline News page shows your dedication to our newspaper, so THANK YOU, and get well soon.
| Hey Kel. Great Metro as usual, but I noticed in your story about the Safety Patrol, you failed to mention that you gave me the demerit and locked me in the brig for 4 hours. Well, actually it was the AV Equipment Room and I came out smelling like English Leather Cologne. Can I get that demerit taken off my permanent record? -Jerry McCarty|
ED NOTE: PERMANENT??? Thanks for the comment Jer, but I'll remove the demerit from your permanent record if you can remove MY permanent physical and emotional scars of being scalded by you with molten hot chalk-lit in the safety boy room behind the gym. (I would be willing to deal if you can permanently remove all visual proof that I once had a permanent). Also, that bewildering scent that impermiated the AV room at Parkman was my personal blend. A combination of English Leather, Trouble, and Jai Karate. And yes, that intriguing scent will stay with you.... PERMANENTLY!
MY FIRST KISS
With the weather cooling down and autumn is upon us, it brings me back to the day of my very first kiss. I was so nervous back then. The questions came to my mind like... Is it the right time? Is anyone watching? Does she even want to? Is my breath fresh? And... should I use some tongue? Sure, my friends thought she was a pig, but I didn't care. IT WAS LOVE!!! Well my friends, I just threw caution to the wind, leaned in and just went for it!!!

|METRO QUOTE o' THE MONTH|
|This was taken from an interview when asked if he thought there was room for forgiveness toward the people who have harbored and abetted the terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks on America. |
I believe that forgiving them is God's function. OUR job is to arrange the meeting.

October Joke 'o The Month
Two men were walking home after a Halloween party and decided to take a shortcut through the cemetery just for laughs. Right in the middle of the cemetery they were startled by a tap-tap-tapping noise coming from the misty shadows. Trembling with fear, they found an old man with a hammer and chisel, chipping away at one of the headstones. "Holy cow, Mister," one of them said after catching his breath, "You scared us half to death -- we thought you were a ghost! What are you doing working here so late at night?" "Those fools!" the old man grumbled. "They misspelled my name!"

A very large, old, building was being torn down in Chicago to make room for a new skyscraper. Due to its proximity to other buildings it could not be imploded and had to be dismantled floor by floor.
While working on the 49th floor on Halloween night, two construction workers found a skeleton in a small closet behind the elevator shaft. They decided that they should call the police. When the police arrived they directed them to the closet and showed them the skeleton fully clothed and standing upright. They said, "This could be Jimmy Hoffa or somebody really important."
|Two days went by and the construction workers couldn't stand it any more, they had to know who they had found. They called the police and said, "We are the two guys who found the skeleton in the closet and we want to know if it was Jimmy Hoffa or somebody important." |
The police said, "It's not Jimmy Hoffa, but it was somebody kind of important."
"Well, who was it?"
"The 1956 Blonde National Hide-and-Seek Champion."

|Why do golf courses have 18 holes?|
Golf courses didn't always have 18 holes. The number of holes used to vary widely: 11, 22, 24, etc. As with most golf tradition-related questions, the reason why 18 became the standard goes back to St. Andrews of Scotland, the granddaddy of all golf courses.
|The original course at St. Andrews (dating back to the 15th century!) consisted of 11 holes along a narrow strip of land next to the sea.Each hole was played twice, for a total of 22. In 1764, two of the holes were judged to be too short, so the course made the switch from 22 to 18 holes (nine holes played two times each).|
In 1858, the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, not an institution to be trifled with, issued an official decree that one round of links, or 18 holes, constituted an official match. Other courses pretty much followed suit, and by the 1870s, 18 holes was the standard.
One legend claims that the number 18 originated as a suggestion from one of the St. Andrews old-timers, who noted that it took exactly 18 shots to finish a fifth of scotch -- a shot per hole. However, this is just a rumor, so you can leave your hip flasks at home. Check out the links in our Golf category for more.
