Saw Willie Nelson Saturday night - he is a great guitar player, still singing okay but not quite like he used to.  His piano player and harmonica player were phenomenal!  Anyway, I was tempted to pick him.

But I ended up picking Obama.  He's my bosses bosses bosses bosses bosses bosses bosses boss.  Maybe he can help me get somewhere with a big problem I'm having at work.  And I think he'd be perhaps the best hiker and conversationalist of anyone on the list.

Hey--I vote for Jesus Christ.  No, not because I'm born again.  But the Bible says that:  

Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill made low, the crooked straight, and the rough places plain.


Should make the hikin' a lot easier!

BTW--these is part of Handel's Messiah...and makes for great humming on the trail.
