There could have been a riot last night in the Texas Capitol. I don’t know how to put what happened into words. I have been involved in Texas politics for maybe thirty years and I have never seen anything like it. I suspect few of us had.
The people seemed to realize they had to stop asking for their own power.
I saw a look of determined peace in the peoples’ eyes as they ran toward what might be their own arrest. It was the peace one only sees in those who have given themselves to do their duty at any price.
Some senator(s) forged the time stamp on the bill to reflect a passage before midnight - video recorded that the vote occurred after the session had expired and that the time stamp had been tampered with.

I'm not familiar with Texas politics. Is Austin about as "blue" as any place in the country? Something like Madison, WI?
