April 6, 2007 Bonus Blog
Everyone's gone (3:35 p.m.). Just me and Ron left to hold down the fort. Everyone took off early, but we had a rough week and they deserve it.

Seth Hoyt and I had lunch at El Encanto earlier in the week. Good talking to him. He has a whole bunch of experience as a publisher and an all around media guy.

Bailed into sketches for the Salt War fight. Texas Rangers holed up in their Ranger Compound in San Elizario, Texas, firing out windows and thru portholes. They were brave fighters facing overwhelming odds and they repulsed wave after wave of insurgent charges, but in the end they surrendered, through a confusing maze of miscommunication and battle-fatigued and truce-fed negotiations, succumbing to outright lies and half-truths. Whatever, they are remembered to this day as the only Texas Ranger unit who ever surrendered.

Gee, I wonder if there's a moral in there for anyone in Washington?
