One week before Wallace Hall at SCOTX, Texas Exes shill for Bill Powers (again)....


"As a dog returns to his own vomit,
So a fool repeats his folly."
Proverbs 26:11

Remember, about six weeks ago, when we mentioned that a former board member of the UT law school foundation (and Joe Straus crony) had brought the court stenographer from the Texas Exes into run his dying legacy publication?!?  You'll never guess whom the afore mentioned court stenographer chose to honor as a "Distinguished Alumni" on the way out of the Texas Exes.  Actually...you'll totally guess because it's such a typical move:
William Powers, Jr.
Life Member
Former President, University of Texas at Austin, Joseph D. Jamail Centennial Chair in Law, and University Distinguished Teaching Professor
“I wasn’t born in Texas. But as they say, I got here as soon as I could: in August of 1977, almost 40 years ago. It was the day Elvis died. And I still vividly remember the very first student I met on our campus. It was Pete Geren, who we’re honoring tonight. And within just a couple of weeks I realized just what a special place this is. It’s one of the world’s—yes, one of the world’s—great teaching universities. We teach the next generation of leaders on a campus that helps discover planets that are orbiting distant stars, that helps us understand dark matter and yes, even helps us understand even better what Shakespeare is about. Every single one of us needs to work every day to keep it that way and to support our great university.”
It's also pretty funny that they honored Charlie Geren's brother (along with a certain incumbent Governor) in the same piece.

Finally, we have to add that the photography in the piece is terrible; good grief, you'd think they could find a competent photographer in Austin Texas.
