Well, well, I guess that answers that. The greatest team of all time isn't the New England Patriots. The greatest quarterback of all time isn't Tom Brady. And THE football family of all time has to be the Archie Manning family. Two NFL quarterbacks for sons. Two Super Bowl starting quarterbacks. Two winners. Two MVPs.
There are allot of reasons why becoming homogenized as a country is a good thing. The blending of cultures and races. I think we see the benefits now in the Presidential primaries, and in recent elections around the country. The one here in Louisiana for governor is a good example.
It could have been worse. Suppose I'd been watching 'Gilligan's Island'?" Bobby Jindal says it with an easy smile. He should be smiling. He has a job he's wanted for a long time, if anything qualifies as a long time when you're only 36 years old. He's governor of Louisiana.
It's curious where your mind goes when you have a two hour lay-over in an airport. I've spent a good portion of my life the last decade sitting in airports all over the world.

Faster than a black jack dealer in Las Vegas, the tins are lined, the muffins are baked, and by the tens of thousands packed and shipped out of this state of the art 63,000 square foot bakery in Shirley New York.

"Go ahead, lift it's skirt, so to speak." "Okay, here we go." That's me talking to Bob Boniface, the Director of the Volt Eflex Design Studio at General Motors. He's doing the lifting. "That's it, that's all I can show you. But the future of General Motors rest right there."
They are the rock stars of the North American International Auto Show at Cobo Hall in Detroit. They come with loud music, fog machines, dancing girls and acrobats. One even came with it's own skating rink. "They" are the concept cars. They are the future of the automobile business. Or not.
