Texas Legislature: A Beacon of Light?

RECEIVED Thu., May 5, 2005

Dear Editor,
    I just wanted to express the pure joy I felt when I heard about the Legislature's latest bill on cheerleading routines [“Naked City,” News, May 6]. I mean, they must have gotten a lot accomplished this session. I admit I don't watch their goings-on like a hawk; but, when I heard about this jewel my mind was put to ease. Obviously, all of the real issues have been put to rest. Boy are we lucky we don't have to worry about things like health care, quality education for children, crime, the 6,000 homeless people in Austin alone, the thousands of abused and neglected children in this state, police agencies run amok, the state budget, corporate fraud at the expense of workers and consumers, the separation of church and state, a functioning prison system, and a secure border. The latter of which relieves me the most. I mean these Oklahomans come in and out of here like it's nothing. Glad to see our leaders have their priorities straight. We can't afford to have them wasting taxpayers' time and money after all. Thank you, Texas Legislature, for your beacon of light guiding us all back to a world free of those pesky civil liberties.
