The shebeen is going dark until Tuesday, barring any major events, like, say, indictments of former presidents*, out of respect for the spirit of Memorial Day. So a new feature is born: Out On The Weekend In The Laboratories Of Democracy.
We begin the latter semi-regular weekly survey in Texas where, as far as Attorney General Ken Paxton is concerned, there are too many chickens for a limited number of roosts. It’s never been a good idea for a state to have an AG who’s been under indictment for nearly a decade but, hey, Texas, boy, I dunno. Anyway, the whole thing has blown up since a legislative investigation found that Paxton allegedly carried over the same attitude into his official duties as he had exercised in the private sector.
