I was there. I've never seen anything quite like it, and I really never expected to. What the articles don't say is that there was line out of the
capitol all the way to 12th st. And all kinds of people were there. You gotta understand - people don't come out to do these kinds of things in
Texas unless they are genuinely pissed off. It just doesn't happen.
Once again government is overreaching, and they just seem to have hit the wrong button this time. If you think this is crazy, wait till you see when
they try to bring this bill back up. Now, everyone actually knows what's going on and it's not just the activist community. These are regular people
here in town that heard about this at the last minute and descended on the capitol building. (Or nothing will happen, as is the normal, but this was
a really interesting day in Texas politics)
If any of you are familiar with Austin, you will know that getting folks to go to much of anything serious is like pulling teeth.
