Somehow, in Arkansas, I grew up a Pittsburgh Steelers fan.
Whether it has been work on (medical malpractice) or whether it has been on tort reform . . . I have been a player ever since I've been in this Senate, and I've made a difference.
They are mostly career people doing a thankless job that not everybody understands how tough it is ... and they are really down right now. They are as down as I've seen them in terms of just worrying about their futures and the future of what they do and the respect for what they do.
I think we should thank the Republican Party in Washington because they assured us we are going to win next year.
People want to focus on this for political reasons rather than focus on the underlying issues that we ought to talk about, which are adoption, parenting, prevention. I hope we can do that. I see nothing right now that tells me that we need to make changes to the existing body of law in this state.
I've seen a lot of excitement around the state as the Democrats are growing. I got in this race for two reasons: I can win and I can make a difference.
Turkey populations are in good shape right now. We had a solid hatch last year that should sustain turkey numbers at a high level through this spring.

There are a lot of guys who might be the best, but I'd have to say Chris McAlister. I've played against him a few times and honestly he gets better each time I face him. He just seems to keep maturing in their system, and he's a talented guy. He's a guy who was voted to the Pro Bowl about one or two years later than he deserved to be because he's someone who they can put on the other team's best receiver and just expect him to hold that guy in check.
[Howard Cosell had many detractors as a commentator on Monday Night Football, but he also helped drive up ratings.] When you heard that voice, you knew a big-time event was going on, ... Still, to this day, no one could ever emulate the things he had done. . . . He made it exciting to watch Monday Night Football.
He's in the classification of Bundy or Wuornos. He will forever have a certain infamous notoriety.
You've got those two guys, and both of them want to be the other one, but it's fun. That's the thing. Those guys know what they do and how they really make their money. They get the chance to go on the other side of the ball and mess around a little bit.
That's just me. I'm kind of nerdy like that because it benefits me it makes my job easier. At the same time it helps me keep my job I don't have to feel threatened by other guys. Now I do it to where I study coordinators I study those guys because they have certain tendencies and patterns of what they want to do.
