    A man spoke to each of his 3 sons when he sent them to college. "I feel it's my duty to provide you with the best possible education, and you do not owe me anything for that. However, I want you to appreciate it. As a gesture of appreciation, please each put $1,000 into my coffin when I die."
    And so it happened. His sons became a doctor, a lawyer and a financial planner, each successful financially.
    When their father died and they saw him in the coffin, they remembered his wish.
    First, the doctor stacked 10 crisp $100 bills onto the chest of the deceased.
    Next, the financial planner placed $1,000 there in 20 crisp $50 bills.
    Finally, it was the heartbroken lawyer's turn. He slowly reached into his pocket, removed his checkbook, wrote a check for $3,000, put it into his father's coffin, and took the $2,000 cash.

    The lawyer is now in Congress, probably in your district.
