PAPA SMURF FOR SENATE:Senate candidate blue -- literally (AP, October 3, 2002)
Montana's Libertarian candidate for Senate has turned blue from drinking a silver solution that he believed would protect him from disease.
Stan Jones,a 63-year-old business consultant and part-time college instructor, said he started taking colloidal silver in 1999 for fear that Y2K disruptions might lead to a shortage of antibiotics.
He made his own concoction by electrically charging a couple of silver wires in a glass of water.
A spokesman for the NAACP said that it's unconscionable that there are no blues in the US Congress. Posted by Orrin Judd at October 6, 2002 6:11 AM
