Paul Harvey " The Policeman "

He must make an instant decision which would require months for a lawyer to make. But...If he hurries, he's careless; if he's deliberate, he's lazy. He must be first to an accident and infallible with his diagnosis. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and, above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp. Or expect to be sued. The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run, and hit where it doesn't hurt.He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform and without being "brutal". If you hit him, he's a coward. If he hits you, he's a bully. -- Full Text

Another masterpiece by Paul Harvey. Why has no one such common sense today?

God, I miss Paul Harvey. When I'd come home from school for lunch my mother would always have him on the radio. We'd sit down and share our mac and cheese or Campbell's Tomato soup and listen to his wisdom and his "rest of the story", five days a week. I didn't know it then, but that was an education.

Yabut he had some horrible sponsors that he personally spoke for. I remember when he was pushing some kind of tea that I bit on and bought. Worst thing I ever tried to drink.
