Tam's looking up state mottoes and reading them out loud -- but not very loud:
TK: "Arkansas! Re- (inaudible) -nek Populus!"
RX: "'Redneck Populace?' Aw, c'mon!" (snickers) "That's just mean."
TK: "No, regnat populus. --'The people rule.'"
RX: "Whew!" (Spends next ten minutes occasionally muttering, "redneck populace?" to herself and giggling).
Arkansasians, my most sincere apologies; your motto truly is a lot better than "The Crossroads Of America." But please, never, ever drop elocution from the curricula of your schools.
