Waco newspaper axes Ted Nugent
Cox recently sold the Waco Tribune-Herald and the new owners have made two interesting changes: they added "In God We Trust" to the newspaper's masthead and now they've sacked Motor City Madman Ted Nugent, who now lives in Waco, as a columnist. Apparently they want a more "conservative" editorial page. The Nuge, who is straight-out libertarian in my mind, I guess has been deemed a damn hippie. I agree with very little of what the Nuge stands for (except Cat Scratch Fever, I've got a bad case of that), but sure seems silly to muzzle a celeb who is nothing if not entertaining and who surely was paid next to nothing.
My theory? The Nuge is in favor of dancing, and we all know about those Waco Baptists.
