Texas oriented reading
As a follow up to my post about Texas from about a month ago, I am currently reading Michael Lind's Made in Texas, which I purchased for $ 1 at a recent book sale. The book thus far is brilliant, even though Lind certainly has a political perspective that he is trying to push. After I'm done with Lind's book, next up on my reading list is H.W. Brands, Lone Star Nation. I guess I am rapidly becoming an adopted Texan, more than ten years after my fascination with Lyndon Johnson, and Texas History and Culture began. Now if I can only use this knowledge to help the Canes keep that recruiting pipeline to Texas open inspite of the Horns Championship. That would be putting all of this to real good use!
