First, thanks to all of you who emailed me about yesterday’s rambling post. The volume was kind of startling, given the fairly serious, philosophical subject matter. And you were all really thoughtful in your responses–far more so than I. One of you even pointed out that Isadora Duncan met her demise in an Amilcar, not a Bugatti, as legend (or that image I used) would have us believe. Perhaps you should take over the car blogging, kiddo….
Second, in unrelated news, Chuck Norris is a complete, utter douchebag:
When I appeared on Glenn Beck’s radio show, he told me that someone had asked him, “Do you really believe that there is going to be trouble in the future?” And he answered, “If this country starts to spiral out of control and Mexico melts down or whatever, if it really starts to spiral out of control, before America allows a country to become a totalitarian country (which it would have under I think the Republicans as well in this situation; they were taking us to the same place, just slower), Americans won’t stand for it. There will be parts of the country that will rise up.” Then Glenn asked me and his listening audience, “And where’s that going to come from?” He answered his own question, “Texas, it’s going to come from Texas. Do you agree with that Chuck?” I replied, “Oh yeah!” Definitely.
It was these types of thoughts that led me to utter the tongue-n-cheek frustration on Glenn Beck’s radio show, “I may run for president of Texas!”
