Maybe Texas Monthly needs a “Top Ten Places Burka Has Slept” report

In one local newspaper’s write-up relating to Texas Monthly’s recent Ten Best/Ten Worst list, one of TM’s “furniture” victims remarked that he thought he’d seen Texas Monthly’s Paul Burka asleep on the Senate floor outside the rail. Burka, interviewed for the story, said he didn’t recall being asleep in the Senate.

Well Paul, Letters From Texas is more than happy to refresh your memory. Surprisingly, it appears in this case that you have no complaints about the furniture in the Senate.

    Eileen, that’s perfectly understandable. I do it too. Every night, for about 8 hours.

    Anonymous at 11:34: yes, of course I have – many times. And I’d be the first to say how hard it is to stay awake. The difference: I wasn’t in a newspaper saying that I had, indeed, stayed awake. Like I said, I’m just trying to refresh memories. 🙂
