The new employment numbers came out today. They show that the unemployment rate in Texas is the highest it’s been in 24 years.
How long ago is 24 years? Ronald Reagan was President. A gallon of gas cost 91 cents. The Soviet army withdrew from Afghanistan. The first known major computer virus attacked computers connected to the internet. INXS, Chicago, and Steve Winwood topped the charts.
That’s how long it’s been since the unemployment rate in Rick Perry’s Texas has been as high as it is today.
But never fear, because Letters From Texas Worldwide Headquarters, Silver Lining Division, has gone the extra mile to bring you the good news associated with our high unemployment: we’re all about to have a lot more sex.
