    about the process is when it seems like I might have a shot at hear nothing at all in response. Because I am trying to be broad in my search, I look at sites like craigslist in addition to the usual job sites. Lots of crap is on there, but recruiters use it in addition to some firms themselves. I've seen positions that seem great for me and say things like "College degree preferred." Perhaps I am assuming too much, but when reading something like that, I'm thinking they are more flexible than a company that only wants someone from a Top 20/50 school. And yet, I hear nothing.

    I've worked with a career coach and have had my resume written. The last interview I went on was in July, and they complimented it, so I am guessing that it's not a problem, although I have considered trying to make it a little tighter.

    There's also the fact that I might not see any likely listings for a few days, if not a week or so.

    Oh well, at least I have a job now. Thanks for the kind words.

    Anyway, as far as Texas goes, I'm eager to see what this election brings. Your statement in regards to the Denton area makes sense. Beyond that, a lot of it is the available voter pool in the biggest counties in the state. I'm not trying to imply that only our side has access to such people, but considering we are doing better and better in places like Harris County, they make a natural starting point when trying to expand. They are big enough, I think, even if the voter pool is smaller than would guess based on illegal immigration and/or unclear voting status, but obviously, a bigger voter pool is almost always better. And given the size of some of these counties, just a few percentage points of a difference could mean thousands of more votes.
