The Sudduth case has earned me a lot of new readers, and because of that I have spent more time on him than I really wanted to. I ought to thank the staff at the Sealy News for all of the advertising commissions I have earned; without their dereliction of duty I wouldn't have sold a thing. But the problem is that I am out here on the road most of the time, and I can't run back and forth to the Austin County Court to find out what's up with him. Just when all of this is starting to get really interesting, (after all he has made history for allegedly owning the most child porn of any teacher in America) the locals have just decided he has vanished into the mist of federal custody...which is all nonsense anyway. This means I might have to move back into some of my old topics, or begin writing in some new categories.
I am going to lose readers. This makes me want to weep, because I have enjoyed the steady flow of traffic. I really like the notoriety, and the fact that this blog is being carried on American towns...it's all kind of fun for me the "hobby writer." Everytime I post something new, I get a slight uptick in twitter traffic. I can't tell that anyone is reading my blog from the twitter posting site, but it's great entertainment.
So now that Sudduth is allegedly poised in federal limbo, what the heck am I going to write about? My child has been moved safely out of Sealy School, (good for him) my homeowners committee has a nice letter that clearly spells out my newfound interest in the budget, and the only notable local action lately has been some wobble with my 91-year old neighbor and Meals on Wheels.
She was shocked to find the editor of the Sealy paper at her door delivering her Meals on Wheels. No one "important" has ever visited her at this address for any reason. The very next week, Nick the mayor shows up with lunch. She found it very strange, almost disturbing, since she, like myself, is very critical of the Sealy "elite." I would hate to find them at my door!
I read an interesting story in the Houston Chronicle about "what if" the Mexican cartels were carrrying out these vicious attacks on politicians and journalists in our country like they do their own. In Mexico 11 mayors have been murdered recently. But I really believe our mayor Nick and the editor of the Sealy News would escape unharmed, they never do anything interesting or controversial anyway. But maybe if we sent them a bus ticket to Mexico things would be different. I don't know. I would like to thank them for delivering the Meals on Wheels though; it made my friend pretty happy.
Well I guess this is all I have for now. As soon as I get back home to Sealy I will make a visit to Austin County and find out what is going on. If anyone wants to read the search warrant, it's included here:
