This Is How We Fight Our Battles

  “I need a glimmer of hope,” the text read as I pulled into our church parking lot this past cold, gloomy Sunday.

Tisk. Tisk. Here we go again coming across a Facebook tag that has me passionately pounding at my keyboard. I am not one to respond to every article I come across; I just don’t have the time nor energy to do so. Despite the media’s insistence that politics has been a life-long passion of mine …

It’s Not About Me: Addressing Media Desperation and Distraction

As you know, a few days ago the Texas Observer published a profile on me rating my “fringe-iness” (their non-word, not mine) and level of influence in Texas politics. Still trying to wrap my brain around that one, honestly! The profile, in my humble opinion, was fairly well done. I mean, the majority of the …
