Deleting John Howard

Submitted by Rick Eyre on September 18, 2004 - 5:57am

Frustrated with the refusal of John Howard to cut and run into retirement? Try doing the following to relieve some of the election frustration:

1. Create a "new folder" on your computer.
2. Name it "John Howard".
3. Send it to the trash.
4. Empty the trash.
5. Your computer will ask "Do you really want to get rid of 'John Howard'?"
6. Answer calmly "Yes" and press the mouse button.
7. Repeat as required.

Tiny Doll is dead. The sister of Grace Doll, Daisy Doll and Harry Doll, Tiny (born Elly Ann Schneider) was a munchkin in the Wizard of Oz (1939).

Tiny was the last of the Doll brethren, and there are now only eight surviving Munchkins from Oz. I can't be bothered doing the research, if anyone can tell me who they are I'd be most grateful.

Whew. Corey Patterson smashed two home runs on Tuesday night as the Cubs beat the Pirates 3-2. In twelve innings. Corey's second homer finished the game.

The Cubs are now 78-64 with two wins so far in their home series against Pittsburgh, but they are still half a game behind the Giants. San Francisco beat Milwaukee 3-2. Bonds is still on 699.
