NPT Media: El Pasoans’ future thinking in Texas Monthly: Secession, legalization, diversity
This month’s Texas Monthly cover bills itself as “The Ideas Issue,” with 82 people writing about 100 words each on how to make Texas a better place. More ideas are featured on the web only. [link]
El Pasoans Tony Payan (let the border have authority to solve its own problems), Diana Natalicio (value education and diversity, understand interconnectedness), Alfredo Corchado (El Paso ought to secede to New Mexico), and David Romo (move the capitol, continually, and get rid of representatives) are in the magazine. On the web, Beto O’Rourke (decriminalize, regulate and tax pot) and Bobby Byrd (the drug war elephant is smelling up the room).
