    STEVE DOOCY: Yeah, maybe, it’s a big debate.

    HILL: Now shouldn’t Texas lay claim to the pecan pie?

    GONZALES: Oh, I’ll tell you, I’ve eaten some great — both key lime pie and pecan pie in Texas.

    DOOCY: Alberto Gonzales, the attorney general of the United States and a confessed pie lover.
