This is a blog about Austin, the “blueberry in the tomato soup,” as Texas governor Rick Perry famously put it. We will comment on this most exciting of cities, the fastest growing large city in the United States and probably all the developed world. We will post pictures, commentary about politics, the arts, and the social and culinary scene, and anything else that suits our interests or moves our spirit. The opinions we express here, which will not necessarily be popular among, er, Austinites (itself a term that offends our aesthetic), are our own, and are not attributable to our employer, family members, co-religionists, people of the same ethnicity, gender, sexual identity, neighborhood, income decile, or any other heretofore invidious classification to which others might attribute group identity or accountability.
Oh. And we’ve done this blogging thing before. And there will probably be some stuff not precisely about Austin. But it will be fun!
