A la recherche du temps askew

So the word today is that Carole Strayhorn, who likes to be called "One Tough Grandma", wants to be mayor again. She held that office when I first came to Austin thirty years ago. I guess that would have made her One Tough Mutha back in those days, although most people I knew referred to her as Ms. Piggy. It's going to be very fashionable on the liberal blogs to trash her, but frankly, after eight years of Bush and six of Craddick, after Tom DeLay and redistricting and re-redistricting and re-re-redistricting, I'm afraid my inner pool of outrage and scorn is all dried up.

Honestly, I think a person would have to be insane to want to serve on the Austin City Council. Carole should know better.
