The People You Know

In the Dallas Morning News today, I noticed this headline with this opinion piece. I took a look at his picture and decided, yep, that's Bridgeport's own Allen Vaught. His biography on his web site is here. Ironically, he's trying to unseat incumbent Bill Keffer who I used to work with back in my insurance defense days in downtown Dallas. And Allen, a lawyer as well, worked briefly in Decatur while I was D.A. He was working on a court appointment case one time as we were negotiating a plea deal. I was impressed with him. But I still remember telling him, as we spoke of his incarcerated client, how "I expect a lot of myself but very little of others." We talked at length about whether that philosophy was good or bad.

Yes he is. He served his country and even was injured in the War on terror. Hope he wins!

Allen is a jackass, always was. Apparently the people blogging on him had no concept of the fool he is. Crazy, is all I can say for his mental state. I hope that he has grown up in more ways than one.
