Cover Story August 05, 2004

Most of us who grew up in the midwest know of the ferocity of tornadoes.  We’ve either been close to them, lived through them, or know someone who has known them, sometimes intimately.


One of the better writers I know is a fella by the name of Kent Ballard.  He lives in a place called Brazil, Indiana.  Sadly, he recently had his rural home hit by a tornado.  Here is the amazing account of what it is . . . what it was like . . . to experience the wind, the noise, the fear, the destruction, of The Tornado.








Editor’s Note:  We’ve picked on attorney so often that we thought, in the spirit of fairness, we should turn our attention to another distinguished profession . . . accountancy:


Q: What's an auditor?

A: Someone who arrives after the battle and bayonets all the  wounded.


Q: What's an accountant's idea of trashing his/her hotel room?

A: Refusing to fill out the guest comment card.


Q: When does a person decide to become an accountant?

A: When he realizes he doesn't have the charisma to succeed as an undertaker.


Q: What's the most wicked thing a group of young accountants can do?

A: Go into town and gang-audit someone.
