He Knows What He Knows

We have a famous transvestite in Austin named Leslie. He used to stand out in front of a Randall's grocery store on Lamar Boulevard, protesting some alleged slight that had taken place in the grocery store. He literally picketed almost every day for years.

Don't even think I'm making this up. Just type "Austin tranvestite Leslie" into Google and you'll get page after page of hits. Or just go here for photos:

Just remember Leslie. He gets mentioned later.

Today, Jack Thompson sent an open letter to the Video Software Dealers Association (VSDA) and the Interactive Entertainment Merchants Association (IEMA). Here's an excerpt (from The Inquirer):

Oh yeah. They'll be coming to the table with you, Jackie. That's like asking Leslie to chair a grocery store conference.

Here's more:
Thompson also claims that if the industry allows the current opportunity to slip by, there may be no turning back. "Trust me," he says, "I know what I know."

You certainly do, Jack. You certainly do.
