If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.
Thomas Jefferson, Letter to Treasury Secretary Albert Gallatin (1802)
Lost, family pet, answers to the name of Spot. Green with yellow scales, affectionate and breathes fire when hungry. Spot has a habit of chasing cars and sometimes catches them. He has a battleaxe scar on his shoulder. Please be on the lookout and if found return to 1313 Mockingbird Lane.
Spot may be accompanied by our cat Kitty who roars like a lion.
Spot was actually created by Fred Gwynne and Al Lewis, aka Herman and grandpa.
