The following was re-printed by "Ann Landers" and
appeared in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner June 19, 1997. We thought you might get a kick
out of it:
"Dear Ann Landers: A while back, you printed a reader's definition of
conservatives and liberals. I have one that is even better, and I hope you will use it.
If a conservative sees someone drowning 100 years off shore, he'll toss him 50 yards of
rope and expect him to swim the other 50 yards so he doesn't become too dependent on
outside help. A liberal will toss out 200 yards of rope and immediately let go of the
other end - in order to do another good deed somewhere else."
