"You can't spend enough money on education"

Today, my National Champion Texas Longhorn baseball team showed up to take a bow at the Texas Capitol. Speaking from the Speaker's podium, baseball coach/Zen master Auggie Garrido made a short speech and finished it with a simple statement: "You can't spend enough money on education." Well said, Coach.

Republican House Speaker Tom "I never saw a tax break I didn't like" Craddick looked like someone had just punched him in the gut. He quickly ushered him off the podium. It was a hilarious moment.

Congratulations, Longhorns and thanks, Auggie for embarassing the penny pinchers in the Texas House. Click here for a slide show, including -- fellow Longhorn fans -- a picture of Governor and Aggie alum Rick Perry giving the Hook 'Em sign. Think he'll ever be able to go to College Station again?
