Unusual Weather, 1836 Again, Final Lines

I do say, we are having a weird election year. Got a card from Lady Foghorn yesterday. She asked me not to vote in my party primary (sort of) and sign her petition. Five GOP Texas House members endorsed a challenger running against a GOP incumbent, errrr, colleague. A Dem Texas State Senator endorses a challenger against a Dem incumbent, errrr, colleague. Pro Choice electeds are supporting an Anti Choice Dem incumbent over a viable Pro Choice Dem challenger. The Voucher King is going after five GOP anti-voucher incumbents. Trials and teachers are helping Foghorn. The Deaniacs are fixing to take over the State Dem Party apparatus. And we're just getting started. Don't forget to vote early today.

Regarding the 1836 team soccer name, who in the heck decided that the Latino community was mad. I talk to Latinos all the time, nobody was upset. Who are the members of the Local Latino PC Patrol? Speaking of names, before they hand out some lame name, why not Toros, why not Caballeros, why not Chulos, why not Vatos?

Countdown to this Sunday's Academy Awards ceremonies - all time great movie lines, Part V - a local Latino political consultant says this line is well known among the Latino youth in the 'hood - "Say hello to my little friend," Al Pacino, Scarface.

A couple more, "Unusual weather we're having," Bert Lahr, Wizard of Oz, "That's a horse of a different color," Frank Morgan, Wizard of Oz.

Best Movie Line of 2005 - "I wish I knew how to quit you," Heath Ledger, Brokeback Mountain.
