I am given some reason for hope by the Texas petition for sessesion. Oh course, I understand it will be Lettermans punch line for his next excuse for entertainment. I also understand it is little more than whimsy at this point. Yet, it expresses a not so underlying sentiment regarding this regime in many states. 55,000 people felt stronly enough to sign their names. I wonder how many more share those sentiments or close to them that did not sign. I know I am one of them.
