Living in Houston I read their editorial page every morning to get my blood pressure up. Its staff editorial writers (Cragg Hines, Clay Robinson) and editorial board are bent towards the Molly Ivins school of journalism ... liberal, moronic, Bush hating.
So, while it confuses me to see them print this, it's still refreshing.
... liberal, moronic, Bush hating.
My sister was in DC yesterday, and accidentally met a group of adults and eighth-grade children, on a school trip from Houston. She shared with one of these mothers a story about when she met some wonderful Texans at the Inauguration in 2001. She thought this remembrance would create a bond of warmth with yesterday's tourist, but was surprised to note that the visitor kept a stone-face throughout the telling.
No "Don't Mess with Texas" solidarity with her!
So sad that even in Texas there are people who harbor ill feelings toward such a great man.
