||Do all these security cameras everywhwere we go make
you worry? It seems that we have no privacy anymore.
I'm not sure how I feel about all the cameras. I've never been a fan of the redlight camera...more so after I got socked for a $50 fine. (It was for turning
right on red and two weeks later they stopped giving tickets for that!) They say that in some cities you can leave your house, be gone all day and come home and never be out of range of a camera. A lot of those cameras are set up to catch bad guys doing bad things. I guess it's a choice between privacy and safety. But like anything else, there's lots of room for abuse. And forget the privacy. We used to have security cameras up on Sharp's Ridge where we have your transmitter. You'd be shocked at some of the things our cameras picked up. Then again, maybe you wouldn't.

||Have you seen the wild socks that former President George H.W. Bush has been wearing? Would you have the nerve to wear them?
I've seen Mr. Bush's recent sock choices and no, I
wouldn't have the nerve to wear them. Then again, I'm not a former U.S. President. Those guys can pretty much do what they want. I'd like to know where he finds them. I've never noticed them in the stores. It
reminds me of legendary sportscaster Lindsey Nelson who was known for the loud sportscoats he wore. After he retired to Knoxville I asked him where he got those loud coats and he said he'd go into a men's store and ask to see "whatever they can't sell".
