I was reading the American Lion (Andrew Jackson's Presidency) and some of the sections sounded so much like what was gong on today in America.
Then I thought about my weight and said how true the saying "The more things change the more they stay the same". When I was young I wanted to weigh more as I was as skinny as a rail. Now that I am built like a pear I now want to be that rail again. Heck I would be happy looking like a telephone pole.
