Texas' Priorities

Jesus. So we're looking at draconian cuts in higher education, secondary education, human services, and just about every sector of the Texas economy. yet somehow the state of Texas can afford $250 million over ten years to support Formula One racing, which may be the world's premiere form of driving in a pattern but does not even register? And to top it off, we are lining the pockets of billionaires AND we are bidding against ourselves?

This is particularly upsetting for me seeing as how I am training this summer to acquire my teaching certification.

Jeremy --
Trust me, I sympathize. The prevailing mindset oif this state's political leadership is absurdly shortsighted.
