    Next thing you know, Calvin will be telling us he ran the Marathon in under 3 hours.

    I have been a very good string jumper in my childhood and I loved to jump as long as possible, it’s long, long ago!!!

    Isn’t that the kind of math that politicians employ.

    Yes, you don’t have to jump quite as fast.

    Just like you should start with your SECOND million, because everyone says it’s easier than the first.

    That song “Skip A Rope” by Henson Cargill comes to mind.

    Yes… I should look up the exact quote and the exact congressional author: “First you spend a billion here, then a billion there, and pretty soon you start getting into real money.”

    See this page and the end of it especially – the saying may be apocryphal and in any case is anecdotal:

    And Alain Harper

    No comment on the strip today, but from the moment I joined this chat forum I have had memories stirred up by others commentary

    Yeah, but Sarah (at 41), ran it faster than he did (at 22)!

    “First you spend a billion here, then a billion there, and pretty soon you start getting into real money.”


    It was not Disksen who said it. IIRC, It was a newly elected Calif Senator with an Asian name.


    Yes, thank you Wikipedia. It was S. I. Hayakawa, US senator from Jan 1977 to Jan 1983. Although it seems to be attributed to Disksen, I remember when Hayakawa said it shortly after becoming a senator.
