I've been trying to find out where in the World is our governor.
Based on this article, Rick Perry is gonna be in Italy next week.... I'm sure he's gonna be working in Italy just as hard as when he is in .... the United States (not in Texas)

This is what happens when you become a one party state. You need two strong parties so you can get losers like this out of office. If they keep cutting infrastructure & education so they can keep cutting taxes and can't find a way to effectively reach out to Hispanics and educated city middle class larger metro citizens it won't be to much longer though.

The legislature's not in session. There isn't a lot of pressing state business at this point. Now seems like a good time to travel.
