If I Were From Houston, I'd Be Insulted

RECEIVED Tue., Feb. 19, 2008

Dear Editor,
    Regarding the dual endorsement in Congressional District 10 between Dan Grant and Larry Joe Doherty [“'Chronicle' Endorsements,” News, Feb. 15]: The Chronicle editorial board missed it. It’s hard to believe that it didn’t choose to exclusively endorse Dan Grant. Dan is a young, fresh face on the political scene bringing with him a world of actual “boots on the ground” experience, straight from running elections in Afghanistan and Iraq, and with a foreign service degree from Georgetown University. Dan, an Austin native, is energetic, poised, and ready to serve all his constituents, even those who live in Houston and the smaller in-between towns that the Chronicle claims “take a dim view of Austin’s weird ways.” If I were from Houston, I’d be insulted.
