Like everyone, I get my share of chain emails – virus-alert! cutest-kittens-evah! you-must-watch-this-video! this-is-amazing! – you know the ones. I just delete most of them, but there are some I open (Jane! – because she doesn’t waste my time).
Today, I happened to open one from someone I’d normally delete. And found this gem:
Dear Mr. President:
There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1 million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:
1. They MUST retire. Forty million job openings – Unemployment fixed.
2. They MUST buy a new AMERICAN Car. Forty million cars ordered – Auto Industry fixed.
3. They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed.
