Fayette County was represented Saturday in what has become an annual rally for the troops at the state Capitol sponsored by conservative radio station WHP. Specifically, my dad was invited to speak.
I didn't tag along for various reasons, but I did edit his speech. Heavily. I'm told by my uncle and grandfather that accompanied him that it went over well and he got much applause, and that he was brought back up later by other speakers. For those of us at home, this meant dealing with the ego boost when he came home Sunday.
Everyone's best friend, Corbett, also spoke, and my dad said he's a really nice guy. My dad also told him he's okay with the budget because he has no other choice. Sure he doesn't. There are absolutely no alternatives to cutting education. I'm sure the state has no wasteful spending.
Maybe it's a good thing that I didn't go...
