She did it quickly at my request and based on my description. I enhanced it using an app called <br />Gimp.<br />Believe me this is no where near as good as she can do depending on the subject.<br />Notice the middle witches smile is in the shape of a bat.

Not once have I found that I or people like me are represented.

I also contact my elected representatives when issues that I am concerned about are coming to a decision point. Sometimes this also feels like pissing into a hurricane-force wind, but I prefer it to the alternatives also. Occasionally, they even call or email back, which reinforces the illusion of participation at least a couple of notches above the level of helpless turtles being steamrolled by history, wealth, and power.John Romeo Alphahttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01289456379789026152noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2424256018460699447.post-2060050962074403552011-10-23T08:35:19.591-05:002011-10-23T08:35:19.591-05:00Ted- the line &quot;so the automobile completely f...Ted- the line &quot;so the automobile completely flattened it&quot; is probably a dead give away.<br /><br />Gwen- Steven is making fun of me and that is allowed.Oldfoolhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14688289425207257034noreply@blogger.com
