Default Al-Gebra . . . a bit of levity.

Subject: Arrest at Kennedy International:

At New York Kennedy airport today, an individual later discovered to be a public school teacher, was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule, and a calculator.

Attorney general John Ashcroft believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement. He is being charged with carrying weapons of math instruction.

"Al-Gebra is a very fearsome cult, indeed," Ashcroft said.

The cult is known to desire average solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on a tangent in a search of absolute value. They consist of quite shadowy figures, with names like "x" and "y"; and, although, they are frequently referred to as "unknowns"; we know they really belong to a common denominator and are part of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country.

As the great Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, "There are 3 sides to every triangle."

When asked to comment on the arrest, President George W. (Dubya) Bush said, "If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, He would have given us more fingers and toes."
