Quote du jour

From the Dave Barry for President web site's Q & A session:
Question: What's the chance that, as president, you would give Texas back to Mexico? Just a suggestion. -- PV, Sarasota, FL
Dave Barry's answer: We are in negotiations now.
I don't know. While I think we screwed up big time admitting Texas to the union, TWICE, it is so quintessentially American now. Even in the People's Republic of Austin, when somebody does something wrong they kill the guy who wasn't responsible.

And speaking of coincidences*, I had never heard of the Juneteenth festival until I read about it on Michelle's blog the day before this story hit the news.

* Okay, maybe I wasn't speaking of coincidences. But maybe YOU were.
