Anyone interested in helping me wonder our way through Hazzard to the State Capitol and find out how our favorite mechanic and my big brother, went from the greasy, hairy mechanic to a cleaned up, shaved Congressman??  What made him even interested in running and since he's there, how has Hazzard benefited???

That makes me want to dig out his book and read it again. He sure is an interesting man who overcame some obstacles in life and through hard work and determination became a household word. Unless you're really young everybody knows who you're talking about when you say the name Cooter. The same could be said for all the main stars. The Dukes of Hazzard was so popular its mark on television will live on a long time. The best example of that is "Daisy Dukes". Today's teenagers might not recognize Catherine but they know what Daisy Dukes are.

You are so right!  My middle son went to a Duke Fest in Bristol, VA with me and he was impressed by how Ben just walked out into the crowd, unlike the others. I told him that the others don't do that to avoid the chaos that would follow. But if they did it on a regular basis back then, by now there may not be chaos when it happened.
