  •  Don't call myself "a Texan" (5+ / 0-)

    I'm a long time resident of Texas.

    There are the greats - Molly Ivins, Barbara Jordan, Ann Richards, Hightower, Cecile Richards....too many to name.

    Then in contrast, we have the embarassments.  Rick Perry - failed candidate for President, and crony capitalist par execellence. Money falling into the sink holes of his campaign donors through the Teacher Retirement Fund, CPRIT, Texas Enterprise Fund; and the dumbing down of our "brain" capital with all the tentacles from higher ed appointments to local school funding. And could we replace KB with someone worse? -Oh yes, we could. Sen Cruz should give us a lot to talk about for years to come, and now Cornyn is our senior guy. And these are just the highest visibility folks - there's Sessions and Hensarling and Smokey Joe and Gohmert and .....

    I have hopes that one day we will have more "greats" and fewer "embarassments"
