What kind of Texas are we leaving for the next generation?
I confess that the question has been on my mind a lot lately. My second granddaughter, Elizabeth Catherine "Birdie" Watson, was born last month. It was a profound moment, full of joy in the present and hope for the future.
It also was about two weeks after a winter storm knocked out power and water in most of Texas, giving millions of us a taste of the 19th century frontier that gave birth to so many myths.
