Billy Ray - but not what you think....

Billy Ray Cyrus...(don't break my heart)

Billy Ray Cyrus....again.... (my achy breaky heart)

Billy Ray Baily.... (with first son Hammish)

Stay with me - don't lose me! I am going somewhere with this story - trust me!

It all started back in 1992. B was attending WSU (Go Cougs!) and had registered for an absentee ballot to be mailed to her in Pullman. She wanted to make sure she voted against Bill Clinton ('but it was all for naught' = B's quote here. I interviewed her for this blog posting).

Somehow, all the election propoganda she received from both the democratic & republican parties was addressed to Billy Ray Baily. B fondly remembers calling Omid & I and telling us of this debacle. She said we were in hysterics (as I was tonight writing down the info!). One good point - her election ballot was mailed in her real & proper name.

So, B - how are the democratic & republican parties butchering your name this election year?
