Dear Editor, After reading Belinda Acosta's column, "TV Eye" [Screens, Nov. 11], I felt compelled to write. I'm not much into dress codes. But I'm savvy enough to know that you don't go to a job interview in jeans. You don't light up a cigarette or bluster or brag. But that's Kinky Friedman. Cowboy hat. Jeans. Boots. And a big cigar protruding from his lips. I don't want that image for Texas. Not again. Republicans may fall for that good ol' boy crap, but I strongly believe that Democrats are too smart to be taken in by such Broadway razzamatazz. Don't misunderstand me. I really enjoy the entertainer Kinky Friedman. I was at his Austin City Limits taping, greatly enjoyed it, and was disappointed that it never aired. (It didn't meet "community standards.") I envision a leader who looks and behaves like a leader. One who speaks sensibly, discourages tobacco use, has a record of public service, has participated in activities that benefit society, and has other relevant experience. I'm pinning my hopes on a strong candidate who can lead this state back to the normalcy we once knew. An exemplar for our children; a compassionate progressive with a keen eye for fiscal responsibility; one who exhibits respect for the privacy of the individual and stands on principle for the rights guaranteed to us in both the Texas and U.S. constitutions. We need a woman or man who doesn't believe in rule by fiat but will fiercely defend the rule of law.
