I spent the past day and a half in Austin. Every time I go, I meet the nicest, smartest, most compassionate people.
The kind of people that wouldn't string out our kids for the sake of politics, the kind of people that wouldn't balance the budget on the most fragile in our state.
But there is a crack in the universe there somewhere, you know, I know it. It's the one where all the other people in Austin apparently are, the ones that make some of the stupidest public policies ever.
I haven't found it yet.
