I am curious, since you are in Texas, what the reaction has been to
Michael Lind's new book "Made in Texas - George Bush and the Southern
Takeover of American Politics?  I have only read the first two chapters,
but I find it a fascinating account of the regional differences in Texas
that produced such diametrically opposed politics.

The thesis about the southern strategy being at work in the present
regime seems to explain quite a bit of the current policy decisions that
are being made.
