shocker

"I could never tell my grandfather," Knox allegedly replied; "It would kill him."</blocqkuote>

The alleged speaker? Jennifer Knox, currently running for a district court judgeship in North Carolina.

The thing she can't tell him about? That she's living with another women.

Her grandfather, who not incidentally is campaigning for her?

Jesse Helms

Wheee!

random Friday Four...early edition

1. Do your outsides match your insides?

2. If they don't match, do you think it is better to modify your outsides to match the inner you...or is it better to try to mold your inner self into "what you appear to be" on the outside...or is it better to let the inner and outer selves exist as they are, sometimes clashing.

3. Why do you think so?

4. What does passing mean to you?
