As a Greensboro native, I would like to assure you that we are not a town of freaks.

Those of you who watched tonight's American Idol may have come away with a skewed perspective of our fair city.

That is all.

And we're going to keep sending them your way, too.

(That's why I came down in October...to make sure the place was appropriate for our weirdos.) Wink

The UNCG guy doing "A Whole New World" on his 'flying carpet' was the highlight for me.

Oh yes!, we host all kinds of Northerners and weirdos here.
Helps make the little less normal feel good about themselves.

Kinda like walking aound the Wal-mart on a Saturday morning. Smile

Note: This is not a slam on Northerners, weirdos, or Northern weirdos.
We are all God's creatures ... even if some are a little askew.
Cool

It's obviously a slam on everyone who shops at Wal*Mart. Smile
