Just received a "Dear John" e-mail from a woman to whom I expressed my political views as being center right.

Here are her last two e-mails.

"Kurt, Well, I'm going to have to think about this. Did you actually vote for Bush? Do you support him now? That's pretty much a deal breaker for me. So. Let me know."

"Kurt, I'm really disappointed to hear that you can support this administration. I don't even know where to begin listing the reasons, and I'm sure you've heard them all from more learned souls than me. Anyway, nice talking to you."

Are there any single female conservatives out there?

Mainstream media will exist only to provide cover. In artistic terms everyone will be underground.

Oh to be Santa Claus; counting the bright smiles on all the children's faces and taxing each one.
