How the hell did THIS happen??!

Today is the first anniversary of Letters From Texas. Nobody’s more surprised than I am that I’m still doing this after a whole year. But I started on impulse, and I’m guessing one of these days I’ll quit on impulse.

Meanwhile, here are a few posts from the past year which were among the most provocative for one reason or another, or at least generated considerable buzz.

Texas Mouthy BurpaBlog

The Spy Who Fed Me

Rodeo Clowns

How To Watch Election Returns

Why Obama, and Hope, Will Win (AKA, the Mae Jackson piece)

Letters From Texas Worldwide Headquarters thanks you, the crap-reading public, for continuing to read this crap, in public.

    Out of the fuzzy haze of the intertubes I stumbled onto this blog of a twisted human. Sort of like finding a kick ass BBQ joint that is more of a shack than a restaurant. Pay no attention to the seven layers of smoke on the walls and enjoy the brisket.

    I vote for the Mae Jackson piece as some of your best.

    Thanks Cactus – that piece was re-edited and was eventually printed on the op-ed page of the Waco newspaper, which was a first for this blog.

    Smoke stained-walls are actually one of the most important features to look for.

    And your shame has not gone unnoticed, Harold – you never did publish my plea to you to come out and canvass in Elgin. 😉

    Cyrus – let’s just say that I gave it all the attention it deserved. 🙂
