"I'm what the world considers to be a phenomenally successful man. And I've failed much more than I've succeeded. And each time I fail, I get my people together, and I say, "Where are we going?" And it starts to get better." - Calvin Trager
Monday, September 19, 2005 ARRRRRRR -- She Still Don't Make Sense!
In honor of International Talk Like A Pirate Day, we'll take former First Lady Barbara Bush's comments about the evacuees in the Astrodome:
"Almost everyone I’ve talked to says we're going to move to Houston. What I’m hearing which is sort of scary is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this--this (she chuckles slightly) is working very well for them."
"Almost sea dogs an' land lubbers I’ve talked t' says we`re goin' t' move t' Houston." "What I’m hearin' which be sort o' scary be they all want t' stay in Texas. Sea dogs an' land lubbers be so overwhelmed by th' hospitality. "An' so many o' th' swabbies in th' arena here, ye know, be underprivileged anyway, so this--this (she chuckles slightly) be workin' very well fer them."

"Christ's example is being
demeaned by the church if they ignore the new leprosy,
which is AIDS. The church is the sleeping giant here.
If it wakes up to what's really going on in the rest
of the world, it has a real role to play. If it doesn't,
it will be irrelevant."
