Some guy is driving along a
clear highway on a beautiful fall day. The sun is shining, the birds
are chirping (not that he can hear them) and he is happy.
Suddenly, a huge meteor hits
his car and totally incinerates everything. He definitely does not
hear the birds now. Maybe he hears the angels - I don't know.
After a time, the police show

through. Why can I not have a loop hole that lets me collect my death
benefits since I was nearly dead for at least a short time. This would
only seem fair to me. I would even be happy to carry on paying my
I think we should band
together and form a new lobby group - say ... "Loop Holes For Life".
If there were enough of us we could exert tremendous influence on big
business to give us back some of the pie. Or at least we could put
together a decent soccer team.
