I lost my soul to the look in your eyes

Location: Texarkana, Arkansas

Dispatch got us a load this morning off-account.  We were to pick up a Pepboys load in Indianapolis and take it to... Texas! Weeee doggies.  I've only ever been to Texas once, when I had the 72 oz. steak challenge at the Big Texan in Amarillo, up in the pan handle.  This will be my first trip deep in the... heart... of.. oh Jesus.  Mesquite, TX to be precise, just east of Dallas.  So I slept all day and got up about 5pm.  I watched Farenheit 9/11 to pass the time while Mike finished up his driving shift.  Fitting, considering my destination.  While I was expecting it to be super-left leaning as one would expect from Michael Moore, it wasn't nearly as bad as I had anticipated it being.  In his books, he tends to be a lot more self-righteous and condescending, but the film was much more even handed.  I presume this was an attempt to not preach to the choir and reach some new people who might've been persuaded in the last election.  At least he understands that being a zealot, regardless of the particular snake oil you hawk, turns the average person off.  Overall, a nice job.  I have Bowling For Columbine in my Netflix queue and look forward to seeing it as well.
