Howdy Y'all

There... Already has made a new friend. He's Neil Aquino and he runs a fine blog called Texas Liberal.

Now I know this is a shock to a whole bunch of folks, but there are liberals in Texas. Just like there are Black Bloggers on the internet. Matter of fact, there's plenty of both. And you really don't have to look all that hard to find either party. But you do have to look.

Texas Liberal is a great place to start. Neil blogs about politics and history, not to mention boredom and burritos. Yeah, I said burritos, but from a historical perspective of course. Ok, I'll do even better than that. For you folks in the Afrospear/Afrosphere, you might remember the MLK roundup we did a few weeks back. Well, Neil has put together one of the best reading lists that I've seen on the subject, which you can check out by clicking here.

So Texas Liberal readers, we look forward to interacting with you both here and in the wider world of blogs. Neil, we appreciate you reaching out to us, and I'm looking forward to that beer.

Thanks for this. We'll keep in touch. I'm not done with the subject of so few Black bloggers among Texas poltitical blogs.
