And all of them were Bush's fault...
Rove ran the soft machine
Prescott Bush’s fault, maybe.
Did they have speedometers? Radar? How did they know how fast they were going?
By counting the rpm’s of the tires, divided by the circumference...I think....
I can see the cops standing on the corner, heads spinning to watch the tires go around.
The above well may not have changed. : )
The rest is amazing. I can't imagine washing my hair once a month. Mine looks horrible if I let it go two days! : )
