BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
A few months ago, while watching Astros and Rangers games on Fox Sports Southwest (which airs a lot of Houston-specific and Texas-related commercials), I saw an ominous commercial (well, really, a PSA) warning drivers that if they littered, the Texas Air Force would get them. The visual was a car driving along the highway when suddenly a jet aircraft appears behind it. (1) Does Texas have its own Air Force? (2) If yes, would it be deployed in such a frivilous way? I haven't seen the ad for a while, so perhaps I wasn't the only one who found it off-putting.
I remember that commercial well. It was, of course, just a joke, but Rick Perry would like to have an Air Force.
It's a sign of either my lack of humor or Rick Perry's reputation that I thought it was the real deal!
