          With Big Al’s endorsement, it appears that Dr. Dean is on his way to securing the nomination as his party’s candidate to challenge George Bush next November.  Many pundits are saying he’s unstoppable.  If he does (and I think he will) get the nomination, his achievement will be regarded as one of the biggest upsets in modern American politics.  If he beats Bush (and I pray he does), his election will mark a revolutionary transformation of our electoral process.  Friends, we are truly witnessing something historic and profoundly hopeful...

Dear Lisa,
While I have no problem with the exam paper from Alan I would like
to point out that most of the answers came from a book entitled
Anguished English by Richard Lederer. It's a very funny book which is
made up of the many mistakes made by students and many others.
In fact most of them are from American students.

p.s. I doubt Dubya could have answered as well as was written.


Dear John,
So good to hear from you again.
Alan does with words, what I do with phototoons. A collage, of sorts. haha
I just love British humor.
Thanks for writing.

12/09/03 - And What About Albert?

Okay..big news today is Gore's endorsement of Dean. My first reaction was shock. (Why Dean? Why now?) My second reaction was sadness. (Poor Joe. Didn't even get called. Poor John, after all he did for you in 2000. Poor Wesley...well, doesn't matter.) My third reaction was 'Who cares'?

And that's the one I'm going with. I don't intend to be specious here. But really, what does it matter other than coverage over two news cycles? Not much....
