      And no offense meant to any and all Texans either. After living for so many years in the US, it just seems strange to be here.

    I am so disappointed in CNN news. I watch them because I think there is more "news" ...

    I was just watching Obama welcome the Camerons, the prime minister of Britain. We listend to Obama. When Cameron began speaking the reporters BROKE IN and started discussing Obama's upcoming campaign.

    HOW ARROGANT. THIS is what America means about the press CREATING the news...not reporting it..

    IF Obama were that important to listen to...can't we be respectful enough to honor what he was talking about?

    I am very disappointed. tt

      I didn't see the interview, but if that was what they did, the they owe the PM a huge apology. That had to be the epitomy of rudeness.

      I agee.
      Why bother showing the meeting if one isn't going to let viewers listen to what the PM has to say?

    Two zebras were standing around talking one day. One says to the other, Am I white with black stripes or black with white stripes ? The other one says, Maybe you should ask God about and he'll give you an answer.
    So, that night the zebra did that, and the lord said. You are what you are. Well the next morning he told the other zebra what god said, and he responded Well I guess that means you're white with black stripes. If it had been the other way, he would have said, You is what you is.

    @ CenTexan©

    Yeah, ti's pretty neat. I'm in the Fort Worth area. A place called White Settlement. All in all, it's the same, but it's different. We went to the Ft. Worth Stockyards yesterday. Big time tourist place. They had a cattle drive right down the middle of the street. That was a whole lot of T-Bones on the hoof. It made me hungry, so we went to a saloon to eat.

    @bobcat...yes, the Ft. Worth stockyards draws a lot of visitors. I've never been there myself. I hear you can get a pretty good steak there. Ft. Worth is 3 1/2 hours north of me....pretty far "up north" to me! LOL
