The Turtle and the Snake

There's that old story we've all heard about a snake who wished to get to the other side of the river. He asked a turtle for a ride. The turtle declined, pointing out that the snake would just bite him. But why would I do that?, argued the snake, for then we'd both die. So the turtle took the snake across the river, and just as they reached the far side, the snake bit him. As he lay dying, the turtle asked, "why'd you do it?" And the snake said: "what did you expect?--I'm a snake."

All of us except Zell Miller and Bob Nelson, that is.
