  • Proposed Congressional Map Angers Democrats
  • April 28, 2011 – What really makes me angry is the degree to which journalists accept the partisan nature of redistricting. Much of the reporting on the issue centers on how legislators protect incumbents, and which party is angry at the other. The assumption is always that this is OK. Journalists should routinely be asking why a gerrymandered, community-dividing map is acceptable, and why it is OK to consider the impact of redistricting on incumbent legislators. These seats do not belong to legislators, they belong to the people and communities of this state.

  • 'Jersey Shore' Producer Casting New Series in Austin
  • April 25, 2011 – I’ve never seen Jersey Shore, but based on what I’ve heard, and on this article, I do not welcome the conversations I’ll be forced to have about Austin’s youth, once this show airs.

  • Governor Perry Ask Texans to Pray for Rain
  • April 21, 2011 – I think he got the idea from the Georgia governor. While I’m at it, I’ll be praying for fair and nonpartisan redistricting, and a solution to the budget crisis that funds public education.
