A handshake. A spoken promise. They once meant something. Of course, a lie meant about 120 grains of Pb slamming through you.

Nowadays, a piece of paper provides the promise, with a lawyer as it's enforcer.

Though I never was there, I miss the days of old...

I too often wish for the days of a handshake "meaning" something. Not quite willing to give up indoor plumbing and the like to go back there, but then again, I'm a girl...

A handshake still means something... depending on the honor of the person...

Indeed, the value of a handshake can be inversely reflected by the population of an area -- the more people, the less value it has.

I like the handshake and spoken promise, too. And it IS still enforced long as there is a witness...sad but true.

I'm with you, bro - with that more people understood that desire. Some people just look at you funny when you say such things though - and I won't shake hands with them.

So what's the latest on the job front???
