The Warren Times Observer newspaper in Warren, PA ran this classified advertisement a few days ago: “May Obama follow in the steps of Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley and Kennedy!”
For those of you who don’t know your American history, the four men were American presidents who were assassinated.
Now here is kicker in this sorrow mess: the publisher apologized and said the advertisin folks on the paper didn’t know who them four men were.
The philosopher of common senses thinks he oughta send them advertisin folks back to school and make them take a course in American history.
Course the publisher did do the right thing: he turned the information bout who put the ad in the paper to the cops.
Now what I want to know is ifn the folks who paid for the ad are some kinds of nut cases, cause they had to know talkin bout assassinating the President of the United States would bring down the Secret Services on they behinds. Then maybe they knowed them folks at the newspaper didn’t know nothin bout them four dead presidents.
Anyway, common sense shoulda tole them bout the Internet where nothin escapes them bloggin folks.
Now I aint sayin the folks what paid for the ad are racists but, man, it show do make me suspicious.
