Welcome to AA. I am glad to see you like the rest of us you can admit you have a problem when it comes to fish.
As for your avatar, I for one find it quite objectionable and very disrespectful no matter what you political belief. I realize today many finally have to face the fact that Senator Kerry lost. No matter what your political persuasion President Bush is the President of the United States and deserves the respect that comes with the office even if you do not respect the man.
I guess one of the things I have enjoyed most about AA is that for the most part it is a politically free forum where people who may have different political views can share their common interest in fish.
I for one would be very appreciative if you would change what I feel is a very inflammatory avatar.
