What was it Gertrude said? Hey, Billy Bob dished it out. He can survive
a bit of payback. I was
hoping for some. Blame the slur's resiliency on Mr. Foxworthy. Best, S

If there are any doubts, I am a redneck, and

I really like to watch Billy Bob on screen, but I don't think he has a
lick of sense, and

I do like Offenbach, but

 >do I now become a total nincompoop?

I have long ago given up expecting to see a balanced approach to
politically tinged rhetoric on this list. Hardy is a dyed in the wool
liberal, and it is his list. I know he tries to fight the urge to allow
his fellow liberals to speak out, inappropriately, on political matters,
but the dark force works too strong upon him. As I said, it is his list,
and I though I disagree with some of his decisions, I will, far the
foreseeable future, support his decision to dispose of his property as
he, and he alone, sees fit.
