at Stag’s Head meeting with a few bloggers. Main reason for going was to meet Grits, he’s a very good writer on the Texas judicial system. Ended up meeting Kuff from Off the Cuff, Robert from Idiotprogrammer, Tom from Houston’s Clear Thnkers and (briefly) Mark Bennett from Defending People. Hamous from LoneStarTimes also joined us, so I wasn’t left completely to the lefty wolves!
Those are some great bloggers, even if our political philosophy is so different. I mean, you have to give credit where credit is due. Grits likes to talk. And argue. And talk. And argue. And talk. Andâ€¦.
We argued about the conditions at the Harris County jail. We argued about recidivism rates of pedophiles. We argued about what a pedophile is. I listened to talk about how bad conservatives have made the judicial system. We agreed that small drug possession cases should be handled as misdemeanors and not be felonies with hard time. We agreed on treatment programs, to a point.
What did I learn? Nothing. But it was fun and nice meeting these guys.
