Texas – State Of Neglect, Part 2

I wrote recently about a continuing series in the Dallas Morning News, and how it reflected my loss of pride in my native state. The second of a four-part series is in the paper today, and continues to discuss in blunt terms the failing of Texas government to protect the weak, the needy, and the helpless. I encourage all Texans to read this fine series. Here is the introduction:

Texas has long been hard on the weak and vulnerable. It fares badly in national surveys of child poverty, food assistance and care for the mentally ill and disabled.

But it isn’t only the poor and afflicted who need help; everyone relies on state government for some protection.

Not everyone receives it.

Business interests and lobbyists exert strong influence on the writing of laws and the workings of state government.

Who benefits from that? Frequently, not ordinary Texans.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
