Love across political lines | Moment's Notice

There is an old political joke that a member of our family, Barry Howard (USAF COL Ret.), used to love to tell.
In a nutshell, a man learns he needs a brain transplant but has to pay for the brain – the Democrat’s brain is $5,000, and the Republican brain is $200.
When someone in the family finally asks why the price difference, the doctor says, “We have to price the Republicans’ brains a lot lower because they are used.”
Barry would let out a booming laugh with a huge smile, and offer the disclaimer that he would take only one Democrat’s brain, my husband’s.
Barry died on...
