--A little humor-- I found this at http://www.iraq-marshes.com/articles.html Honk If You Want to Lift the Sanctions on Iraq 5/28/2000 The other day I went to the local Arabic bookstore, where I saw a "Honk If You Want to Lift the Sanctions on Iraq" bumper sticker. I bought it and put it on the back bumper of my car, and I'm really glad I did. What an uplifting experience followed. I was stopped at the light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about Iraq, and didn't notice that the light had changed. That bumper sticker really worked. I found lots of people who love Iraq. Why? The guy behind me started to honk like crazy and pretty soon he leaned out his window and yelled something as load as he could. It was like a football game. Everyone else started honking too, so I leaned out my window and waved and smiled to all those loving people. There must have been a guy from Florida back there because I could hear him yelling something about a SUNNY BEACH, and saw him waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. I asked my kids what that meant! They kind of squirmed, looked at each other, giggled and told me that it was the Hawaiian good luck sign. So, I leaned out the window and gave the good luck sign back. Several cars behind, a very nice black man stepped out of his car and yelled something. I couldn't hear him very well, but it sounded like, "MOTHER IS A TRUCKER." Maybe he was from Florida too. A couple of people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out their cars and were walking toward me. I bet they wanted to congratulate me, but just then I noticed that the light had changed, and stepped on the gas. And a good thing I did, because I was the only driver to get across the intersection. I looked back at them standing there. I leaned way out the window, gave them a big smile and held up the Hawaiian good luck sign, as I drove away.
