Commentary knows somebody that attends a church where most of the church goers are of the Anglo persuasion. A big majority of the church goers probably voted for W in '04. The church is located in an upscale neighborhood. The somebody told Commentary that the church goers are grumbling about what's happening, errr, what's not happening in Austin. Lack of leadership. A regular and two specials that produce zilch. Pay raises and pension increases before school children and public ed. The church goers weren't grumbling earlier in the year.
The somebody knows something about politics, schools, and the legislature. The somebody says that folks - like the church goers - want folks in Austin to fund schools and fund roads - period.
