Of Note from the Filibuster
Things I forgot about until watching the video I filmed for editting:
A lot of school tours happened that day. Stupidly thinking they may be interested in having the children briefly meet a candidate (cuz isn't that cool when you're a kid? no?), I would approach the adults in the group and briefly tell them about what David was doing and invite them over.
All of them said they were private schools, and showed little interest in the political system itself; they were there to look at the pretty building. One even said to me, "Oh, were a private school. We're going to agree with anything they pass. It always benefits us."
Not a joke.
And I forgot how appalled I was to learn that Texas allots nearly twice as much spending per inmate than pupil.
