Al-gebra is a very fearsome cult!

    "At New York Kennedy airport today, an individual, later discovered to be a public school teacher, was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a setsquare, a slide rule and a calculator. 
    Attorney General John Ashcroft believes the man is a member of the notorious al-gebra movement. He is being charged with carrying weapons of Math Instruction.
    "Al-gebra is a very fearsome cult, indeed", Ashcroft said. "They desire average solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on a tangent in a search of absolute value. They consist of quite shadowy figures, with names like "X" and "Y", and, although they are frequently referred to as "unknowns", we know they really belong to a common denominator and are part of the axis of medieval, with coordinates in every country. As the great Greek Philanderer Isosceles used to say, "There are three sides to every triangle." 
    When asked to comment on the arrest, President Bush (dubya) said, "If God had  wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, He would have given us more fingers and toes.""
    Your serious comments are elicited.   lol
