Primary roads like interstate 81
and 581 look to be more wet than
anything, however VDOT says there are
still some slick spots out there so
drivers should use caution when out
travelling today.

V-DOT's plan is to keep on top of
the primary roads until the
precipitation stops, then concentrate
on getting the secondary roads cleared.

The system didn't lay down much

through the Roanoke Valley but it was
enough to close down schools and allow
for some snowball fights and sledding.

And with a snow or ice storm

IS IT JUST POSSIBLE THAT WE MAY BE
LOOKING AT THE NEXT GOVERNOR OF THE

GREAT

STATE OF TEXAS.

You know Texas elected a country singer
to governor in 1940. So it's not

unprecendented that this could happen.

YOU CAN'T GET MUCH MORE POLITICALLY
INCORRECT THAN KINKY FRIEDMAN.

HE'S BEEN THAT WAY EVER SINCE HE
PIONEERED THE JEWISH COUNTRY MUSIC
GENRE WITH

HIS BAND, KINKY FRIEDMAN AND THE TEXAS
JEWBOYS.

I'm a bastard child of two
cultures....Texas and Jewish and the
only thing we

have in common is we both like to wear
our hats indoors.

IT BLENDED KINKYS GIFT FOR SATIRE WITH
A GENUINE LOVE OF COUNTRY MUSIC.

WITH SONGS LIKE "THEY AIN'T MAKIN JEWS
LIKE JESUS ANYMORE" AND RIDE EM
JEWBOY"

KINKY HAD A CULT FOLLOWING BUT NEVER
REALLY HIT IT BIG.

SO IN THE MID EIGHTIES, HE TURNED TO
SOMETHING ELSE....WRITING MYSTERY
NOVELS

WITH HIMSELF, THE KINGSTER
(kinkster?), AS A PRIVATE EYE.


And now I think there's 18 novels that
I churned out....I mean carefully

crafted.

A TALENTED WRITER, HE COUNTS BOTH BILL
CLINTON AND (the first president?)

GEORGE BUSH AMONG HIS FANS.

BOTH HAVE HAD HIM AS A GUEST AT THE
WHITE HOUSE.

MAYBE THAT'S WHAT GAVE HIM A TASTE FOR
POLITICS.

People are fed up with career
politicians lying to them and also, if
Willy and

Lance Armstrong stay out of the race,
you're talking to the next Governor of

Texas.

THE ELECTION IS NOT UNTIL 2006, BUT
KINKY IS WASTING NO TIME.

Here's some campaign posters. - "How
Hard could It Be"

AS FOR OTHER ISSUES, HIS POSITIONS ARE
A LITTLE HAZIER. TAKE ABORTION.
