    But the changing demographics of Texas — both in age and ethnicity — makes the possibility of progressive Democratic rule not out of the question.
    Inexorably, as demographic pressures continue, our base grows and their base shrinks. No one knows just when the tipping point will be reached, but it is coming in Texas (where I lived and cast futile votes for many years) and, when it arrives, the carnage to GOP office holders will be horrific (for them).

    Save the U.S. Postal Service, an august, efficient, trusted and indispensable American institution.

      Not even voter suppression can overcome the changing demographics. If we resist and organize, it'll happen sooner rather than later -- for sure.
