The Haircut

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut.  After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, ‘I  cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this  week.’ The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber  went to open his shop the next morning, there was a ‘thank you’  card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later,  a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill,  the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you , I’m  doing community service this week.’ The cop was happy and left the  shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was  a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his  door.

Then a Member of Parliament came in for a  haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again  replied, ‘I can not accept money from you. I’m doing community  service this week.’ The Member of Parliament was very  happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to  open up, there were a dozen other Members of  Parliament lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And  that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between  the citizens of our country and the politicians who run  it.

Voices From Chernobyl

When a routine test went catastrophically wrong, a chain reaction went out of control in No 4 reactor of Chernobyl nuclear power station in Ukraine, creating a fireball that blew off the reactor’s 1,000-tonne steel-and-concrete lid. Burning graphite and hot reactor-core material ejected by the explosions started numerous other fires, including some on the combustible tar roof of the adjacent reactor unit. There were 31 fatalities as an immediate result of the explosion and acute radiation exposure in fighting the fires, and more than 200 cases of severe radiation sickness in the days that followed.

I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.
J. Robert Oppenheimer at the moment of the Atomic Bomb Explosion, quoting from The Bhagvad Gita
