PERRIN RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT
Of the Computer Club, that is. In June the Leisure Village Computer Club will elect officers for the next year. At this month’s meeting, club president Dr. Carl Perrin announced that he and the other officers are running for reelection.
After the announcement he cleared up a question that must have been in the minds of many club members: What if he runs for the presidency of the United States and is elected to both offices? Will he just forget about the Computer Club and take care of all that Washington political stuff?
Perrin assured members that it would be no problem. Though he has not yet committed to running for the White House again, it is still an option. Although his is not the first name that comes to mind for most people when they consider presidential candidates, he surely has as much chance as some of the bozos who are throwing their hats into the ring.
If by chance, Perrin is elected president of the Computer Club and the United States, he assured club members that he would be able to handle both jobs. “After all,” he asked, “How many days did George Bush spend at his Texas ranch while he was president?” The president has to get some time off just like anyone else. Perrin figured he could come to New Jersey over the weekend and fly back after the club meeting on Monday. If something came up in Washington over the weekend, he would have no problem taking care of it from the Garden State. After all, that’s what the Internet is for.
