Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Recuerden San Jacinto!

On this day, a small, outnumbered and outgunned force of Texians faced off against the brutal forces of a corrupt dictator. No, I'm not talking about the special session; today is the 170th anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto which secured independence for the Republic of Texas. I was lucky enough to spend part of the day today at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin, an experience I recommend to anyone interested in the heroic history of our state.
