The cab driver had a five o’clock shadow on his/her face and a lovely gingham dress, peach color. How odd I thought, wearing a summer dress on a cool winter night. We engaged in conversation and she had a deep gravelly voice. We talked some politics and she/he denounced President Chirac and praised President Bush. This seemed very strange to me. In a heavy accent she/he said “Bush number one, Chirac zero”. I thought that perhaps the Bush administration should be informed seeing that this support from a transvestite might suggest larger support. ‘Transvestites for Bush’ might be the new battle cry.
