Duelling Banjo's?

Hmmm ... well the man is from Texas, as I recall the 'duelling banjo's,' is more of a deep South Georgia sound. I guess its close enough to Country Western though.

Actually, I like the tune named duelling banjo's, don't you? :wink:

Hey Trippy, as an old nemesis of yours, I could not let this pass without a futile attempt at piissing you off.

While I respect the man for all he has done, doesn't this whole NRA thing stink of the military analysts fiasco of a while back?


To the public, these men are members of a familiar fraternity, presented tens of thousands of times on television and radio as “military analysts” whose long service has equipped them to give authoritative and unfettered judgments about the most pressing issues of the post-Sept. 11 world.

Hidden behind that appearance of objectivity, though, is a Pentagon information apparatus that has used those analysts in a campaign to generate favorable news coverage of the administration’s wartime performance, an examination by The New York Times has found.
