"This must mean that he believes we Texans are either dimwitted or have very short memories."

Letters to the Editor
For Rick Perry to even suggest that he will run again for governor means he must think he could win.
This, in turn, must mean that he believes we Texans are either dimwitted or have very short memories.
I sincerely hope that voters will remember the extravagant junkets he has taken, including to Spain -- home of Cintra.
I hope we all remember that he is the main force behind the Trans-Texas Corridor fiasco.
Because most of us are opposed to the corridor, last year our Legislature passed a two-year moratorium on it, so that impact, etc., could be studied. Governor Perry vetoed that bill.
Most of all, I hope we all remember that Governor Perry is the one who also vetoed the bill that would have prevented our homesteads and land from being condemned and taken for use in developments, such as the Trans-Texas Corridor.
