Here’s the speech at the Texas Renewable Energy Industries Association (TREIA) conference I referenced in the last post. By the way, props to TREIA for the high production value at this conference. Everyone looks a little bit smarter with one of those little TedTalks microphones wrapped around their ear, don’t you think?
More thoughts on this blog…
It’s been five days since my first post, which suggests I might not be up to this challenge I’ve set out for myself. Have had a thousand thoughts I’ve wanted to share on this blog in the intervening five days, but just never had the time to sit down and write them.
What makes it even harder to post consistently and frequently is my goal to keep this blog from being anodyne political blather. I said in my first post that the only guaranteed audience for this blog is the opposition researcher working for my next political opponent. That said, if this blog is worth doing (which it probably isn’t), it needs to be a forum for real political issues.
There’s a second way this blog could get me burned. I’m probably going to talk a lot about my family. Besides oppo researchers, the other likely reader of this blog is my wife. I’m sure I’ll write something here that gets me in trouble at home. Especially if I’m really committed to not being anodyne.
(That said, Happy Anniversary to my wife of seven years today!)
(And, so much for not being anodyne.)
But I appreciate the outpouring of supportive messages from those of you who have already become avid readers of this blog. I must have gotten at least two of them.
Today is our first day of real debate on the House floor. We’re adopting the rules that will govern procedure in the Texas House for the remainder of this session. I could probably post something not-anodyne about it, but not being anodyne does not necessarily mean it will be interesting.
