Well I really do love getting out of beating her listeners or readers and to because we really do a fun bunch that follows. All of line. And to be honest with you the book is pretty relevant considering what's going on Washington beast. Without telling us everything about it what do it's easy current events type thing and end. I your view on on though all that's happening is that it. It is you know I was really influenced growing up and and and becoming a writer by. People like Erma Bombeck and Loomis bizarre who has a great southern humorist. And does so so by. I'm writing news is similar in that I try to use uber. 22 in bay you know a lot of our points that is really get in vote.

Mayor what turned out only 13% of registered brokers bought their initial Election Day so. Most of the of the of the moral of the story is the bad guys about what are you just do what she's to a I am the bad guy it was all the good church going people Houston Texas who did bother so collect. Well you know and did most of the time for a local election turnouts not that great and Adriana from national election with that then you get a lot of people come out that. If you get to separatists. Citizen councils century Centre county commissions. Something that voter turnout just not very high and yet it can have a big impact in fact a huge impact. That's right in the case of Houston those pastors who have defied subpoenas almost out of themselves Romans ankle.
