An old Italian gentleman lived alone in New Jersey . He wanted to plant his annual tomato garden, but it was very difficult work, as the ground was hard. His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament:
Dear Vincent, I am feeling pretty sad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my tomato garden this year. I’m just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. I know if you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would be happy to dig the plot for me, like in the old days. Love, Paopa
A few days later he received a letter from his son.
Dear Papa, Don’t dig up that garden. That’ s where the bodies are buried. Love, Vinnie
At 4 a.m. The next morning, FBI agents and local police arrived and dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man and left. That same day the old man received another letter from his son.
Dear Papa, Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That’s the best I could do under the circumstances.
Such a moron. And prat. And totally wrong. jerk.
Larry King had some pointed words for his former timeslot rivals Rachel Maddow and Sean Hannity during an interview on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources.”
Speaking to Howard Kurtz on the CNN show, King said he had no regrets that he did not follow his rivals into opinionated territory, even as they beat him in the ratings. He stressed that both Maddow and Hannity were “very good” at their jobs, but that his style was very different to theirs:
“My own concept, Howie, mine is I never learned anything when I was talking. So what they are, are preachers. They’re preachers of their opinion. They’re telling you what they know. They’re not learning. There’s no learning experience from either of those programs. They’re just telling you that what they know. I want to learn. I want to learn.”
