Bill Moyers Just Gets It

"Texas is run by the rich and the righteous, and the result is a state of piracy and piety that puts the medieval papacy to shame."
-Bill Moyers

Seeing as how it happened right in my own backyard, I feel sort of embarrassed for not having seen the speech that line came from sooner.

Yesterday, The Huffington Post reprinted Moyers' speech from The Texas Observer's September 30th fundraiser here in Austin. Every Texan should read it.

As usual, Moyers breathes well-articulated form into the horrible, sinking feeling more and more of us are waking up to these days. He also reminds us that today's fight is just a variation on yesterday's, which will be a variation on tomorrow's. It's great stuff all around.
