|The MCCARTY METRO HAS A NEW HOME!|
Although we are still under the basement steps, and the web address is still www.mccartymetro.com, 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 mccartymetro.com 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 www.poofcat.com/july.html. Happy Trails! -Jerry Richards

Metro Sound Off - Letters To The Editor
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 www.ihavenolife.com
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.|
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.
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!

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...
