Gail Collins: The Lone Star Stickup
Like it or not, says New York Times columnist Gail Collins, what happens in Texas doesn't stay in Texas: it ripples through the rest of the U.S., determining the political landscape and defining our national identity. Author of As Texas Goes, Collins argues that the proud state of big oil and bigger ambitions-where Bush, Cheney, Rove, and Perry created a conservative political agenda based on vigorous support of banking deregulation, lax environmental standards, and even sexual abstinencehas become the bellwether of a far-reaching national movement that continues to have profound social and economic consequences for us all.
