Pitts, Hill, Dunnam, Gallego — just pounding away at Chisum. About the higher ed money. Point of order. The Craddick forces (he’s not in the chair, Woolley is; he’s working the floor) run huge risks if the game the rulings tonight. This is real drama. I hear Pitts may be the choice, but this is unconfirmed. The anti-Craddicks had the first team in the game and the Craddicks had Betty Brown at the back mike. When you centralize power in the speaker’s office, you can’t develop depth of talent. The Craddicks are no match for the antiCraddicks in the parliamentary game. I intend to maintain a healthy skepticism about Craddick’s removal until I see the head on the stake.
