My Final Thought


Although we are still under the basement steps, and the web address is still, some major changes that can only add to the Metro viewing experience has taken place quite quietly this past month.

Thanks to the technical help and financing of Bob Balch and Jim Matczak, the McCarty Metro has been renewed for another year, and on a new server. The new services offer the same reliability, but now can offer some more features. Right now, you can get your own email address.

One snowy night, Sherlock Holmes was in his house sitting by a fire. All of a sudden a snowball came crashing through his window, breaking it. Holmes got up and looked out the window just in time to see three neighborhood kids who were brothers run around a corner. Their names were John Crimson, Mark Crimson and Paul Crimson. The next day Holmes got a note on his door that read "? Crimson. He broke your window." Which of the three Crimson brothers should Sherlock Holmes question about the incident?

As an American, Veteran, and Senior Citizen, I think it would be appropriate to put the "Red Skelton" Pledge of Allegiance on the Metro. The Pledge can be found at Happy Trails! -Jerry Richards

Metro Sound Off - Letters To The Editor

 Kelly, I never did like you! - Jerome Klotz

Another great issue K! I really liked the layout and use of spring colors on the borders, etc. Now if you could just get rid of the weird drunk guy leering at me while I tried to read, I would still be able to sleep at night.

ED NOTE: Speaking of sleep, you may not want to at Gull Lake because something very very bad might happen to you.
I have coupons for 13 weeks of the McCarthy Metro at 35 cents off. Please give me a subscription for 13 weeks. And then I will cancel. Also, put the paper in the side door. And don't slam it shut. I I keep an ample supply of change in my Grandpa change purse, so don't expect a tip. 
-Mr. Skeeba
ED NOTE: When delivering, Is it OK if I cut over your lawn... IN MY CAR!!!?

Why Not Sound Off To The Metro


Dear Sir, Please cancel my subscription to the McCarty Metro. I am disappointed that I could not get into the McCarty Metro Chat room tonight. I was all set for a stimulating exchange with Ralph Montgomery. Instead I had to spend my evening updating my blog. Check it out at
Hollyood McCarty
ED NOTE: I am sorry that the chat room was down that night, but I understand that the Instant Messaging Services was overloading that night. You and Ralphie got something goin on?

To da editor: Hey, ya gotta good Web site, eh. But my nose is outta joint after I saw dat picture of a Michigan mitten in da May Metro. Hey, ya troll, did ya forget we gotta Upper Peninsula, too? You betcha, eh.
-Eino Calumet
ED NOTE: Sorry Eino, it won't happen again. Why don't you cool off with a dip in Lake Urine

After reading the voluminous April issue cover to cover, I just have one question: Do any of you McCarty's have time to WORK? Tremendous effort. By the way, I linked to the aerial photo site, and spent the better part of a week punching in addresses to see if my old Detroit stomping grounds were still around.
-Diann Matz
ED NOTE: Yes, I have plenty of time to work... I just have no LIFE!

Hi Kelly, Last month, your web site mentioned my Father Joe Zisler. I am originally from Detroit. Please let me know what the connection is. My Father was a Homicide detective for the Detroit Police department. He retired in 1974. That is when we moved out of Detroit to Cincinnati, Ohio. He was also a WW2 vet. My Dad passed away in 1991, and my Mother passed about four months ago. I miss them very much they were surely the greatest generation.
Thanks, Joseph R. Zisler
ED NOTE: Not only were they part of the greatest generation, but they were Detroit's (and our) Finest!

While at the office, pour water in hand, make sneeze noise, throw water on back of person's neck:
(Amusement Potential: 5-15 minutes) 
Always a good gag. For an even bigger reaction out of the person, act like you're not sorry at all for what they think you did. Comment instead on how big that sneeze was or about how there was a lot of mucus in that one.

Joke Of The Month

Sally was driving home from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road. As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride. With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car. Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally. "What's in the bag?" asked the old woman. Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, "It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband." The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said...

"Good trade."
