Well not surprisingly, the Hubbard City Cafe is inundated with requests to do everything from endorsing political candidates to picking winners in the Super Bowl according to Aunt Martha, semi-local librarian, author, poet, and editorial writer of some degree of influence. As much as the folks would like to help, they have only so much time when you consider the major issues of some importance that are addressed on an almost daily basis.
While not endorsing any candidates so as to keep their fair and semi-balanced reputation there are some candidates that are in favor with the folks at the cafe. One of those is Al Cowan who is seeking election to the U.S. House of Representatives in the Texas District 11 which includes cities like Marble Falls, Midland, Odessa, and San Angelo.
Al opposes big government, using tax payer money for bailouts and slush funds, and is for limiting the terms of congressman to return governance to the people. He has a business background and sees congressional service as a way to pay the country back for his good fortune.
As far as predicting the winning team in the Super Bowl, Aunt Martha says the folks would clearly make no predictions despite the fact that they believe the Colts Peyton Manning will lead an end of the game drive to outscore Drew Brees and his "Who's Dat Crew" by the score of 38-35.
I am still thinking about this one,
