~ Levi Lily, my lion ~A Harley biker is riding by the Washington, DC zoo when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs the girl by her jacket and tries to pull her inside his cage! The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and, with a power punch, hits the lion on the nose.
The lion jumps back, letting go of the girl, and the biker returns the child to her terrified parents. A reporter, watching everything, tells the biker, "Sir, that was the bravest thing I've ever seen!"
The biker replies, "Well, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I saw a child in danger and acted as I felt was right."
The reporter says, "I'm a journalist and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page. What do you do for a living and what political affiliation are you?"
The biker replies, "I'm a Marine and a Republican."
The following morning's newspaper headlines read:
U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT
AND STEALS HIS LUNCH
which, pretty much, sums up the media's approach to news these days.
