    politics in your part of the country. But, I must, the desperation of Republicans everywhere this election season is giving comedians lots of material everywhere.

    Support Doug Tudor! in his FL-12 race against Adam Putnam, 3rd ranking Republican in Congress!

      Seriously, this small town in-fighting about seemingly trivial things cost people elections in these of areas.  I grew up in the south.  I know.

      rural state, I can tell you that people take their livestock really seriously, I mean REALLY!  I live in a  state border area of about 300,000 people and I can drive 10 minutes and be on a working farm.  There are farrowing houses a few minutes from my apartment.  4-H is huge, even for some city kids.  The Great Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds are now smack in the center of town and my favorite thing is the animal barns.  

      You haven't lived until you've walked between rows of stalls filled with the biggest-a$$ horses in the world and dodged golden showers.  Depending on the animal, you can see people literally styling its "hair" before going into the ring.  Some of those animals get more baths than a teenager with a new girlfriend.

      Yup!  Pig balls are important.  After all, there would be a big shortage on Rocky Mountain oysters if the pigs had only one gonad...
