If similar initiatives catch on in other states, it will be a matter of time before we opponents of Obamacare are labelled “secessionists” and “traitors”.

TEXAS Polls, are you listening?

The Texas legislature is already in recess until 2011, isn't it? That biannual format is sure a double-edged sword; they have less time to screw things up, but they also require a special session if something of importance demands their attention.

I recently took the guided tour of the Texas capitol. In the House chamber, the guide was explaining that the legislators met there only every other year. One of the other people on the tour, a 40-ish woman, asked: "Now, the years when they don't meet here... is that when they meet in Washington, D.C.?" Most other people in the group exchanged eye-rolling glances, but the tour guide was polite and didn't even point at her and laugh. From her accent, I'd say she wasn't from Texas - thank goodness.
