Beach ruling stir political tsunami

I pay attention anytime conservative Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson and liberal icon and former state senator “Babe” Schwartz agree on something. Both are upset at the Texas Supreme Court for a ruling that undermined public access to beaches (“Official wants judges ousted for beach ruling“). Texas Monthly senior political writer Paul Burka (who attended law school) also weighed in on his blog (“Defeat the Supreme Court Deadly Duo“).

There are some Texas traditions that transcend ideology and seeing the variety of people lining up against the Court’s decision on Texas beaches tells you a lot about the issue and how misleading political labels like “liberal” and “conservative” can be.
