Y'all Come to Texas, Mr. Secretary

How stupid are they? How about this stupid:

Walk and Cycle Emphasis For Feds

Secretary LaHood, I will extend a cordial invitation for you to come to Texas and try your concept. I'll offer you free room and board at my house, and humbly note that the food is excellent and the wine well worth drinking.

You will get to bring the bicycle of your choice and your best walking shoes. You won't have access to a car and you can't hitch-hike. You will be required to go wherever I go during the week. That includes the college, the grocery store, the post office, the bank, the gun shop. Wherever I go you must go as well, but you will do it without an internal combustion engine. I don't expect you to keep up. Simply make the rounds to demonstrate your plan in practice.

15 miles from my house to work. He'll be a mere fragment of his former self after a week.

Speaking of wine worth drinking, Ras as the Brits are wont to say, You were "mentioned in dispatches"

well there's your problem, you have been irresponsible in choosing the place that you live, you should live within easy walking distance of your work...or have a tax payer funded limo to take you to the various fund raisers and congressional meetings you attend...

I'd imagine a few days of bicycling around during a Texas summer would cure him of his bicycle fetish. I can either drive myself in my air-conditioned vehicle or spend 4 hours transferring and waiting on public transportation (i.e., the bus) to get to work.

"It's a whole 'nuther country" is more than just a slogan.
