The last ‘hooraw’

Dear Editor:

George W. Bush and his band of outlaws will soon be heading out of town. From history, we used to think Dodge City took a beating when the cowboys come to town. Well, there’s a new Dodge City, called Washington D.C., and G.W. and his gang have just about shot out every light of freedom, torn down the walls of justice, left us with the largest debt in history and is trying to open up all our national treasures for exploration before he hightails it out of town.

Unlike Ronald Reagan, he won’t be wearing a white hat. With a new sheriff in town and a posse of Democrats on his heels, we hope he can make it back to Texas ” we’re kind of fed up with him. Maybe he can go play golf now!
