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."

Life In the Big City

Democrats smashed the nearly 30 year long GOP stranglehold on Dallas County, and may do the same thing in Harris County next election. This is significant, and indicates that the Dallas Massacre was not just the result of demographics (a polite euphemism for "white flight") since Harris County still has a large, predominately white and usually reliably Republican suburban population. It's certainly a big change; I clearly remember a meeting of the venerable Harris County Democrats around Christmastime, 1994, when one speaker described the suburbs as "the idiot belt."
