    Here's my official list of 10 reasons Texans should vote for Kinky (I stole this list from a whiney liberal, but I fixed it to take out the whining):

    (1) Kinky has run for office in the past as a Republican,

    (2) Kinky voted for Bush/Cheney in 2004,

    (3) Kinky's interview with Ruminator magazine confirms that he supported Bush's Middle East foreign policy,

    (4) Kinky's public voting records confirm he was mistaken when he said he voted for Gore in 2000,

    (5) Kinky hasn't voted for a Democrat in any election at least from 1994 to 2004,

    (6) Kinky wants to take time during the school day for prayers in schools,

    (7) Kinky wants to post the Ten Commandments in public school classrooms,

    (8) Kinky is not obsessed with political correctness,

    (9) Kinky knows how to deal with illegal aliens from Mexico, and

    (10) Kinky’s immigration policy of hiring Mexican generals to police our border is a great idea that John McCain has endorsed.

    From the Kinky One himself (quoted from kdka.com) on the Ten Commandments in schools:

    "I want them back, they belong there," says Friedman. "Maybe I'll have to change their name to the Ten Suggestions, you know. But they were taken out, not by separation of church and state, but by political correctness gone awry. One atheist stands up and says, 'I don't like the Ten Commandments,' and suddenly out they go. And, of course, we all know what happens to an atheist when he dies. His tombstone usually reads, 'All dressed up and no place to go.' "

    Sounds like an interesting guy.

    My one comment about this is...

    Where did they find the woman who did the presentation...Disney Epcot Center (World of Tomorrow). She sounds like she's ready to take you on a voyage of incredible discoveries.

    Remember hold on to the handrails (or maybe not, they maybe crawling with bacteria from snotty nosed kid) and enjoy the trip. :)

    Cool show, scary about the powerstations....like many people, I am sure you prefer to breath your air, not chew it!

    I have to say, I love it when Americans say 'shire' instead of 'shear', its so cute.

    For future refrence though, Yorkshire is pronounced York-shear, Buckinghamshire...Bucking-um-shear and Devonshire does not exist, its just plan Devon....with clotted cream and mad gun loving farmers...ahhhh, such wonderful childhood memories...'run, run for your life!'

    *meep* *meep*

    Metroplex . . . such a sexy word. How I miss hearing it on the news.
    And to pat myself on the back--I haven't driven in 6 mos. (Work provides a bus pass). Last time I went to move my car, it wouldn't even turn over.
