I keep subscribing to the WSJ because they offer the closest approach to objective reporting in the mainstream media that I've found. I read the Op-Ed pages because they make sense. The regular columnists are intelligent and informed. The guest editorials span the political spectrum but they are written by respected and knowledgeable people.
This one strikes close to home, literally!
It's About Texas, Folks!
Sure the basic question is which came first, the chicken or the egg. Which is it, did Perry cause Texas economic success or did Texas simply do what we do and Perry happened to be smart enough to stand out of the way. Regardless of which answer you choose, the important thing is that Texas makes business happen. It doesn't seek to obstruct it, over-regulate it, redistribute it, or selectively choose who should succeed.
Gotta love that!
