The Texas Eagle is the Amtrak train that for years has operated between Chicago, St. Louis, Little Rock, Dallas, Fort Worth and San Antonio. But facing a $243 million shortfall in 1997, Amtrak President Thomas Downs recently targeted four Amtrak routes for elimination, including the Texas Eagle service between St. Louis and San Antonio. "What can you do to save our Eagle?" the couple pleaded to the vice president.
Gore responded with: "Dear Mr. and Mrs. Delgadillo, Thank you
for your letter
regarding the protection of the Texas eagle. I appreciate
hearing from you. "I share your
view that the urgent problem of species extinction and
the conservation of biological
diversity should be addressed. The first step in saving
any plant or animal from extinction is
to become aware of and respect the fragile ecosystems
that make up our environment ...
"Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. I
look forward to working with you
for the future of our planet."
Maybe he meant "rip-snortin'" or "rip-roarin'" or "rootin'-tootin'"?

Yeah...I know a lot of places where bald men run around in orange robes with incense burning.
(A Senate committee investigating campaign finance voted to issue 43 new subpoenas, including 23 connected to a Democratic fund-raising event at the Hsi Lai Buddhist temple in California that was attended by Vice President Al Gore. Participants paid $2,500 each to attend, in apparent violation of the temple's tax-free status as a non-political religious group (5/23/1997)
Wait though... he may have not realized it was a fundraiser because he was in the bathroom!
But Mr. Gore said he was sometimes inattentive and missed parts of fund-raising meetings. He told the F.B.I., according to notes of a 1998 interview, that "he drank a lot of iced tea during meetings, which could have necessitated a restroom break." New York Times, 3/11/00
This was part of a speech that Al Gore gave during the Apec Business Summit dinner in Malaysia. After giving this speech which was supporting the meaningless reformasi movement in Malaysia, Gore walked out of the hall without even taking his dinner. This is a clear insult to the host nation, Malaysia and shows how arrogant, rude, and insensitive Al Gore is, and in the process, angered Malaysians along with its neighbours who condemned Al Gore for giving the speech at the wrong time and place.
