DURST: Trust

I trust 3rd graders.I trust the post office.I trust Regis, but not Kathi Lee.I trust tug boat pilots.I trust one armed security guards, but not if they wear a gun.I trust bartenders in dives.I trust any CBS correspondent with the first name of Charles.I trust Gospel Singers, especially if their first name is Aretha.I trust Molly Ivins.I trust Jerry Brown, but I wouldn't want to sit next to him on a bus ride to New York.I trust burger joints that grind their own meat.I trust 60 Minutes.I trust The Jim Lehrer News Hour, but remain convinced it makes a better radio show than it does a TV show.I trust flannel sheets.I trust a well worn pair of blue jeans.I trust people who admit they don't know, every once in a while.I trust old men who wear black socks with sandals.I trust single red roses.I trust farmers for directions but I can never understand them.I trust the American flag but not all the people who wave it.I trust black coffee.I trust living rooms with lace doilies on the arms of the couches.
