T.L. Hines will be interviewing Dark Horse Presidential Candidates, starting on Friday or thereabouts. It could prove to be very interesting and/or entertaining. It will be happening here every Friday.

Speaking of Dark Horse Candidates, my personal favorite was Henry Krajewski (pronounced Cry-YOO-ski). He was a pig farmer in Secaucus, New Jersey. (Many years ago, Secaucus actually was the home of many pig farms, and I swear that one can still smell the aftermath today.) He was also a saloon owner.

He ran for President in 1952 as the candidate for the “Poor Man’s Party” and again in 1956 for the “America’s Third Party.” Link. A most colorful character, he spent the rest of his life (he died in 1966) capitalizing on his presidential bids. He was quite a local celebrity and a much sought after speaker, all of which brought lots of business (I am told) to his tavern called “Tammany Hall.” Here is a picture of Mr. Krajewski.

Shortly before he passed away, he spoke at my college. After his speech, he took questions from the audience. One student asked him what his plan was to lessen world hunger. Ol’ Henry replied, “Da solution is simple. In every bundle a wheat we send ova’dere to India we ought to put in a little ‘boit control’.”

I’ll Bet You Didn’t Know…

I’ll bet you didn’t know that there is a picture of a penguin on the license plates in Antarctica. Neither did I until I checked out License Plates of the World. The site contains pictures of license plates from virtually every country in the world and from every state in the United States.

I admit it. I often find goofy shit to be interesting.

The author of Two Nervous Dogs claims to get only twenty hits per day. And, of the twenty readers, only five are bloggers. WTF?? I’m a regular reader, and I know that Craig at MTpolitics and Sarah of Trying to Grok are as well. Can three such charming and astute people be wrong? Do we have so little juice? Or, could it be that our collective legs being pulled just a bit?

If, however, it is true that only twenty people per day are reading Two Nervous Dogs, that is just wrong. There is good stuff there. Go look.
