A spokesman for Tall Birds Against Perry 
said Thursday he has never forgotten when Rick
Perry--then Texas' Agriculture Commissioner--
said, "Breeding and processing emus represent
a new direction for Texas agriculture.  This is a
product that is raised, processed and manufactured
right here in Texas, which means we are keeping
jobs, opportunities and dollars at home working
for all Texans."  Just a few years later, the
Great Texas Emu Bubble burst, leaving
 Texas investors saying, "Charles Ponzi
was a saint, compared to Rick Perry!"

Rick Perry's role in Texas' emu ranching fiasco is a tale we'll probably hear more of as time goes along.
