It’s not everyday you’re in the same room as the president.
But if you go to Houston’s City Hall meetings on Tuesdays, you can enjoy his presence to your heart’s content. That’s what I hear anyway.
I spent most of my afternoon at City Hall for work yesterday. The mayor’s photographer, sitting next to me, mentioned that the “Previous” section of public comments was the best part of the meeting. He noticed that both the president and a senator were scheduled to speak.
“President of what?” I asked.
“Of nothing,” he said. “He thinks he’s President of the United States or of the world. He says he was abducted by aliens and they made him president. He’s here every Tuesday.”
I looked at the agenda and saw that he was supposed to be speaking about the mafia, and removing Bush’s, Kerry’s and Nader’s names from the ballots.
I think it would have been fun to hear him speak. However, I’d been there since 1:30 p.m. and they were only halfway through the public comments and not even close to his turn by 4. So I gave up and left. I am disappointed that I don’t have a picture of the distinguished guest of the city.
Has anyone else ever seen or heard of this guy? I’m sorry I can’t recall his name.
