I think Kathleen Ruegsegger should have been nominated for this. No on G!

Brian, can you spell "idiot"?
A positive action happens and someone comes back with a negative.

Sounds like you worked real hard to get where you are.
Good for you & all the best to you!

I tell you what, they should have picked Kathleen Ruegsegger because she would have brought good ol' Bible teachings and Richard Pombo values to our sissy schools! All this book learning will make our kids weak with San Francisco Values!!! We need our own private school called "The G.W. Bush School of Bible Learning and Guts". Kids would learn how to look for oil, drive pick-ups, clear brush, and listen to their gut. I'm takin' bout AMERICA here!
