While PinkDome has been cavorting with other bloggers at SxSW, we (the royal we who are Bluebonnet) have been cloistered/spaced out/busy with other stuff/sunning ourselves on the Coast/watching the Weather Channel. So we're a little slow to post about this entry from Inside the Texas Capitol. Apparently, HB2 was not written by legislators, but put together with recommendations from a conservative think tank. How surprised are we? Really, not too much so. Why write a bill when someone else will do it for you?
We got in trouble for doing something like that in high school - it was called plagiarism when we didn't come up with our own thoughts and copied someone else's. We realize this is only slightly the same thing. And it probably happens more often than not.
update: Valley Politics has a great post on the notion of Californians coming up with Texas law.
