I’m searching for a magic lantern. When I find it I will rub it and ask the genie for these three wishes;

1) World peace;

2) Truth in advertising by political candidates worldwide;

3) Politicians whose primary objective is improving the welfare of their constituents.

Wait! If I get 2 and 3 I will probably get world peace. I think maybe I should have used it to ask for the end to all discrimination. No, that would probably come with 2 and 3 also.

OK, I think I’ll go with the end to pollution and global warming. Darn, that may come with 2 and 3, too. Think I’ll go with a vaccine against cancer. Anybody else have an idea?
