Scenes from the Texas State Dem Convention #8

This was the beginning of Day 2 at the Texas State Democratic Convention. As I was waiting around outside of the At-Large Nominations room awaiting the beginning of the at-large process, I sat on the floor charging my phone and video/cam and the newspaper lying next to me caught my eye -- especially the headlines. One day in the convention and we had over 3% drop in stock market, a hefty half-point rise in the unemployment rate (even with all the contract workers who don't even register on that these days) and a record $11 a barrel rise in oil. It doesn't take long for everything to make the trip to hell in a handbasket! Another good day to be a Bush ....
