  •  Louie's district is east Texas. The first (6+ / 0-)

    congressional district of Texas has METROPOLITAN areas, I'll have you know.  They are, uh, Lufkin-Nacogdoches, Longview-Marshall, and Tyler.  Well, okay, not exactly Minneapolis-St. Paul or Greater Manhattan.  Population of the entire district was less than 700,000 in 2000.

    Population is 74% white, 18.4% black and 9.3% Hispanic.

    Jefferson is a quaint antebellum tourist mecca.  I say antebellum, except that their a little postbellum as well, as they still maintain several brick confederate powder magazines along the river, replacing the wooden shutters every time the old ones rot off.  Never know when you're gonna need to fire up the old Napoleons again...

    Mule-drawn wagon rides through town are a major attraction.  I understand the mules are pretty damn smart.

    Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed. --Herman Melville
