Tursday Tree

Q. Why did the Possum cross the road?
A. Don't know, it's never been done successfully.

1) What one non-federal officeholder from the South, currently holding office, do you believe is doing an honest day's work?

Ooh. That's a tough one. Probably have to say, our current Comptroller (and most likely our next Governer) - Carole Keeton Strayhorn. She's never been afraid to call it the way she sees it, and you'd best see it her way. She's done a bang-up job as Comptroller in holding the line on expenses and not letting the legislature pull any fast ones over on the people of Texas.

2) Have you yourself ever been a holder of any appointed or elected authority, board, agency, office, or position?

Nope. But I've almost been an election judge - twice. Both times the election has been called, though, due to the fact that everyone running wound up being unopposed.

3) If you awoke one morning to find that you had been made King of the South, what is the first law would you repeal or decree forthwith for the benefit of your people?

"If I ... were King ... of the For-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-st!" "Put 'em up, put 'em up!" "Ow! You didn't have to hit me."

Sorry, what was the question again? Oh, yeah, King of the South ...

Daylight Savings Time. It's got to go. You want more light after work? Start work an hour earlier. Just leave the stinking clock alone.
