Straus does right by Texas

The Dallas Morning News - - World -

Re: “Straus must be re­placed,” by Ralph Red­dick, Tues­day Let­ters.

I dis­agree with Red­dick. Speaker Joe Straus is one of the saner voices of the Texas House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives. He rep­re­sents what he feels is best for Texas, not what the far right or Chris­tian con­ser­va­tives think is best for us.

An ex­am­ple is the bath­room is­sue, a sub­ject in­deed dear to the lieu­tenant gover­nor and gover­nor, but of con­cern to very few oth­ers. This is mostly a non-is­sue meant only for grand­stand­ing and to rile up the base.

We have so many more im­por­tant is­sues, such as our low-rated pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion or high rate of those with­out car or health in­sur­ance. Stop wast­ing time and money. Michael Podol­sky, Dal­las
