26 December 2004
I started this blog in December 2004. There were rumors swirling about who was going to challenge Rick Perry. On a whimsical note, I described the situation as "Rick Perry versus the World." People started reading, so I kept posting...well, ok, there's been quite a few interludes where I stopped posting.
I choose to leave my last name off of this blog, because I'd rather prospective employers not see this blog when they google my name. It's not hard to figure out if you really care though. I graduated a few years ago from Rice, where I wrote my senior thesis on the Deep South gubernatorial campaigns of the 90s.
