Bush gets a bigger discount that Wimpy Kid?

    Hold your thumb over the “un” in the headline, Dr. Hanley. The laughter is yours, free to keep.

    (It’s a sarcastic headline, but sarcasm is filtered out over the intertubes, you know.)

    I don’t get the title of your post. What’s so unfortunate about a juxtaposition that gives me a good belly laugh?

    Writing from Texas today, so especially enjoyed the Dallas post.

    Here I’ll go off-topic if I may to alert folks that if you google Al Franken/Huffington Post there are two good stories about the FCC making alarming rulings that would affect websites like this one regarding net neutrality. Corporate websites should be banned from “priority pricing” that lets them buy the fast lanes on the Internet, leaving us in the slow. We need a Paul Revere community of independent bloggers so we can alert each other to crucial upcoming FCC rulings and make our voices heard.

    Funny about this store: It’s in Dallas, about five minutes from Bush’s home.

    I’m sure they meant no insult to the Wimpy Kid.

    One might wish a book by Barbara Bush entitled “My Beautiful Mind” existed…and was also on display, perhaps flanked by a pastry cookbook called “Let Them Eat Cake”.

    Love it, Ed!
