RE: A happy, happy day in Houston
Well, at least here in Houston, we get a cut of all that oil money heading to Bush's bosses in Saudi Arabia. Not only that, we get to pay about .20 a gallon less than everyone else in the country as we load up on that sweet high-test fresh from the Texas City tap. Sniff....sniff.....we love you guys, man.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
