Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Texas oilman T. Boone Pickens wants to supplant oil with wind - "SWEETWATER, Texas — Get ready, America, T. Boone Pickens is coming to your living room.

The legendary Texas oilman, corporate raider, shareholder-rights crusader, philanthropist and deep-pocketed moneyman for conservative politicians and causes, wants to drive the USA's political and economic agenda."

I saw Pickens' ad while watching Countdown last night. It starts out with just narration, and as I listened to it I thought it might have been Bill Moyers--except there was a little too much Texas twang for Bill. I then guessed Jim Hightower, but again, the voice wasn't high-pitched enough.

You could have knocked me over with a sofa pillow when I saw Pickens at tne end.
