Jason Molina

(Gainesville expatriate Jon Resh gets my 2nd vote)

If you're talking power-wise...Oscar D'Angelo's kind of intimidating. He rides around this neighborhood slapping his own brand of parking violation stickers onto cars.

The head of the Hispanic Democratic Organization, Daniel Solis, is a dark horse power hitter.

Oh, and me.

Oprah is a total stud.

... the Hispanic Democratic Organization
Wow! They're ALL from Spain? Incredible.

Anyway, I vote for Paul C. Nendick -- except he's left, um, nevermind.

I hear Alejandra Valera is hottt.

John Cusack and Joan Cusack.

On second thought...since Paul is gone, I should pick someone. That someone be Mr. Hottt himself. Yeah, you know who I'm talkin' about!

Hey, don't look at me. Maybe Latino Democratic Organization was ungainly. Or maybe it was named by some ancient, half-Irish Machine hack.

Can I put in a vote for Marv Levy He lives here. And that guy can swear with a creativity unmatched.

aren't we all hipsters? why has NOBODY said Jeff Tweedy? C'mon, people!

Aw man, I just came across this again and noticed my mistake. It shoulda read: "The head of the Hispanic Democratic Organization, Victor Reyes, is a dark horse power hitter." Man, one more slip like that and no more Christmas cards from Danny ;)
