    and the Texas-bashing has begun.  May we not distinguish Perry from the whole of the state and its people?  Are we not your fellow citizens?  We ARE 25,145,561 out of 304,000,000, or roughly 8% of the US population.  Shall we just dis and write off 1/12 of ourselves?

    Please help, shut up, or get out of the way and we'll fix the damn state ourselves, but PLEASE do not engage in the gratuitious broad-brushing of this state with Perry paint.

    We live here, We get it.  Hell, we LIVE it.

    I welcome all justly deserved ridiculing of Goodhair, despairing of the ignorance and choices the Texas electorate makes, and any other legitimate swipes.  But, mixing those with all-over generalities is insulting, tiring, and unproductive and not even passing-the-time amusing.

    Shall we cast stones at the morans in Wisconsin who elected their governor?  Or Florida's?  Shall I go on?

    No, I shall not, and I respectively ask that others not follow this vein.

    Texas is changing, inexorably, through its demographics, and its electoral politics will also change.  We welcome and invite your help to do so.  Just not the cheap shots at those of us working here to change it.

    Torture is Wrong! We live near W so you don't have to. Send love.
