Hands-down my favorite Heber Taylor editorial ever.
Great job of summing up the situation, Mr Taylor!
Good grief, I am in full concert with Mr. Taylor's views. A Red Letter Day!
One thought to follow on one of Heber's points about the provincialism of those residing in other parts of Texas. It is not entirely true that oil and chemical tankers cannot call at Amarillo or Van Horn. If the folks in the distant parts of our good state would not mind paying the costs out of their local pockets for building ship channels to their parts of the state, and compensating product and ship owners for the differential of lost time on 10 day transits to their new ports, then I think when that is completed, and the new petrochemical complexes are built and operational, then we should consider paying higher property insurance costs here on the coast.
Which State (or even US) Representative or Senator from Dallas will be first to propose this solution to high cost of coastal insurance?
