Roger Williams

We had a visit at work today from former Texas Secretary of State Roger Williams. Mr. Williams has announced that he has joined the race to replace US Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison when she vacates her Senate seat to run for Texas Governor. Mr. Williams spoke for a few minutes, took a few questions, and then headed off to his next stop on the campaign trail. I liked Mr. Williams and I agreed with a lot of his political views: The only problem is that I suspect, as with all politicians, that he was lying...because his lips were moving! :-)

Barry, I agree with your overall assessment of politicians. It does not say much when you think more of used car salesmen than you think of people you elect to office. Nice lighting here.

Good job! Looks like you capture a "real" moment here.

Thanks Patrick and Larry!

Patrick - FYI Mr. Williams IS a car salseman! :-) I think he said his dealership is in Dallas.

Larry - I noticed you remembered that this is a politician and put "real" in quotes! :-)
