Messing with Texas

Apr
28

Hats off to Stuart Leavenworth, editorial page editor, The Sacramento Bee, who responds to complaints from Texan Gov. Perry about a cartoon that ran in his paper with the following reply:

Jack Ohman's cartoon of April 25 made a strong statement about Gov. Rick Perry's disregard for worker safety, and his attempts to market Texas as a place where industries can thrive with few regulations. It is unfortunate that Gov. Perry, and some on the blogosphere, have attempted to interpret the cartoon as being disrespectful of the victims of this tragedy. As Ohman has made clear on his blog, he has complete empathy for the victims and people living by the plant. What he finds offensive is a governor who would gamble with the lives of families by not pushing for the strongest safety regulations. Perry's letter is an attempt to distract people from that message.

With all our problems, having a failed state south of Oklahoma is the last thing we need.
