Dear Captain RibMan,

As a fine upstanding U.S. citizen, I have having difficulties

deciding on

which candidate to vote for. Many of them espouse ideals I

agree with, but

none of them espouse all of them. Any suggestions?

--J Rybinski, San Antonio

Dear J,

You sound idealistic and full of the leadership qualities that I

look for in

a government official. Have you thought about running for

office? I love

your strong stance on topics. You are innovative. A Washington

outsider.

You talk about "espousing"; does this have anything to do with

gay-marriages?

Do you have a newsletter that could give me more insight into

your stances?

If not, don't worry about it, I'll vote for you anyhow -- You

say you don't

agree with everything that others say, and neither do I! So, by

default, I

must agree with everything you do!

Can I be your running mate? I don't know what office you are

running for,

but I'd love to run with you! J. Rybinski and C. RibMan! Ryb &

Rib!

"Creating a better future for our children! Although,

technically, they're

not 'our' children!" Again, where do you stand on this whole

gay-espousing

thing? Should we adopt?

Good Luck!

Dear Captain RibMan,

My favorite movie is Pee Wee's Big Adventure and my favorite

part of that

movie is when he goes into a bar and tells all the bikers to be

quiet

because he is making a phone call. What is your favorite movie

and movie

line?

Sincerely,

--P.W.

Dear P.W.,

This past year was a tumultuous one. With Arnold Schwarzenegger

running and

winning the Governorship of California, it led me to review his

extensive

body of films. Most importantly, of course, with his stance on

education

and reduction of crime, "Kindergarten Cop" was the obvious focus

of many of

my weekends. At a poignant part of the movie, John Kimble

(Schwarzenegger)

delivers the line, "I'm the party pooper." That is deep on so

many levels.

Furthermore, his movie "Predator" featured the

always-inspirational line,

"If it bleeds, we can kill it." Trivia fun: The movie

"Predator" features

the most muscle-bound freak/actors-turned-governor out of any

movie released

in the 1980s.

Good Luck!

--Captain RibMan
