Regionalism

Just what the jalapeño is wrong with wearing a cowboy hat?
Nassau County officials asserted that scores of federal immigration agents from around the country, some wearing cowboy hats and brandishing shotguns and automatic weapons, endangered residents and local police officers last week as they raided homes in a poorly planned antigang operation that resulted in 168 arrests.
I first heard this story on Special Report last night, but couldn't find it on Fox's website. The guy from Nassau cited cowboy hats as a complaint against the immigration agents.

In his performances, Ron White tells a funny story about what happened some 20 years ago when he walked into a bar in New York wearing a cowboy hat. Are you familiar with it?

"I don't think so, Scooter."

Very funny! Where was that he was from--French, Texas or Fritz, Texas?

He's from Fritch, just north of Amarillo.

Larry Bird is from French Lick, IN. Just thought you needed that to round out the comments...and in case you're wondering, there is no Fritz Lick, IN.

See, the feds should have said...no, mate, these are Aussie hats [smartly avoiding the bush part of the name]. And Oz being quite liberal leftish of a country, everyone would have said oh, and moved along sheepishly. Or goatishly.
