Some 13 months before the established political parties select their nominees in the state primary elections, Friedman and his trademark black cowboy hat and Cuban cigar were entering the political arena Thursday morning for what he's promised will be an unconventional campaign.

'I want the thing to be fun,' he said in a recent interview with The Associated Press. 'But you can do something fun and still have it be important.'

The 60-year-old Friedman, whose nearly two dozen books include 'Kill Two Birds and Get Stoned' and whose campaign bumper stickers proclaim 'Why Not Kinky?', chose the grounds outside the Alamo, the symbol of Texas independence, to officially begin his independent campaign."
