|Dianne Cage: April 7, 2011|
Last night I dreamt I went to the Louisiana House of Representatives. It seemed to me I stood by the iron gates leading to the chamber and for a while I could not enter for the way was barred to me! I called my dream to the people. Then like all dreamers, I was possessed of a sudden -- with supernatural powers and passed like a spirit through the barrier before me! I was elected to the Louisiana House of Representatives by the people of District 17 and District 16. I asked for no money, only the peoples trust. There would be no parties, no advertisement, no bill boards, yard sings, no office expense, I ran on vowing to surround myself with only the best of the best, the smartest of the smartest. For never compromising my people, having taken no money, I owe no one. I answer only to my loyal subjects and their needs!
KEN BOOTH will be my deputy inspector, answerable only to me. My council will be THOMAS JEFFERSON, MIKE CAGE, GEORGE SNELLINGS, JR, HENRY CARROLL, HERSCHEL ABBOTT, COLIN POWEL, JAMES DAVISON, JOHN EMORY, ALEX HUNT, GEORGE SNELLINGS IV, MARIE LOUISE SNELLINGS, CARRICK INABNETT, DR. NICK BRUNO, SHERMAN SHAW, DAVE NORRIS, CAROL CUDD, CAROL JARRED, NANCY INABNETT, BIDDIE NORRIS, DR. WARREN BLAKEMAN, DEAN BLACKETT, SAUL MINTZ..(better known as SAM), ALEX GEORGE,TEX KILPATRICK and TAYLOR CAGLE. First thing we would do is go to Washington and lobby for tort reform (you loose, you pay). If the trial lawyers object, we will call William Shakespeare and scare the APRIL FOOL out of them!
APRIL FOOL'S DAY and Happy Birthday to DEBBIE NEALY CLICK!
