“DECALOGUE, n. A series of commandments, ten in number --just enough to permit an intelligent selection for observance, but not enough to embarrass the choice. Following is the revised edition of the Decalogue, calculated for this meridian.
Thou shalt no God but me adore:
'Twere too expensive to have more.
No images nor idols make For Robert Ingersoll to break.
Take not God's name in vain; select A time when it will have effect.
Work not on Sabbath days at all, But go to see the teams play ball.
Honor thy parents. That creates For life insurance lower rates.
Kill not, abet not those who kill; Thou shalt not pay thy butcher's bill.
Kiss not thy neighbor's wife, unless Thine own thy neighbor doth caress
Don't steal; thou'lt never thus compete Successfully in business. Cheat.
Bear not false witness --that is low -- But "hear 'tis rumored so and so."
Cover thou naught that thou hast not By hook or crook, or somehow, got. --G.J.”
“We strictly abided by the selection criteria we had set and we did not want to go back on our words by diverting from it. We calculated the average of two highest scores in the two trial camps and the national championships and the top two scorers were given the place in the team.”
“The corps is asking the public to stay tuned. We do not have a preferred alternative selected. We have gathered up a tremendous amount of data over the past five years, working with the region and other federal agencies. All this information needs to be considered in developing a recommendation on improving salmon survival through the four lower Snake River dams.”
