Texas Liberal

All People Matter

Top Texas Blogger Now America’s Most Beloved Published Author


Already the leading political blogger in Texas (Note–This view is not shared by anyone else.), I’m now also America’s most beloved published author.

Cincinnati’s Aurore Press has released Stories for Shorty: A Collection of Recollections from the Jockey Club 1982-1988. This book details the famous Jockey Club in Newport, Kentucky. The Jockey Club (photo above.) was at one point the finest punk rock club in the United States.

The book is a series of reminiscences by patrons of the Jockey Club and by the members of the bands that played there.  My contribution to the book is on pages 188 and 189. I’m now a published author.

On this past November 22, a book release party and Jockey Club reunion concert was held at the Southgate House in Newport, Kentucky.  I was lucky enough to be in Cincinnati for the concert. Northern Kentucky University Professor Ken Katkin, a leading academic in the Cincinnati area,  has written a review of the show that you can read by clicking this link. Mr. Katkin is a professor of constitutional law at NKU. 

Also, please allow me to note that Cincinnati punk legend Robert (Jughead) Sturdevant of SS-20, will be talking up his new Aurore Press release ” A Pardon’s Prism”  at the Mount Washington Creamy Whip and Bakery at 2069 Beechmont Avenue in Cincinnati. This limited release chapter book discusses the history of presidential pardons. The event will be Saturday, December 27 at 8 PM.

It is great to have old friends that we can see from time to time and keep in touch with over the years.

It is also great to be the leading political blogger in all Texas and to be America’s most beloved published author. What will really be great is if someday I can make my first dollar off of these distinctions. If you’d like to send me that dollar please leave a comment here and I’ll get back to you.

  3. Texas Liberal is The Voice of The Political Blogger

    Keep up the good work. Everyone can make a difference in this world. I just wanted to take out the time and share with you some info on a great Christmas Poetry Book. The title of it is, “America’s Most Famous Book of Poetry,” by Patricia P. Berry. This book is beautiful inside and out. The cover alone is stunning. Also, on the political side, there are poems in it dedicated to famous individuals such as President George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, Ale Gore, Oprah Winfrey, Ronald Regan, and Paris Hilton. Besides, the book is destined to be a best seller and it is positive and inspirational. This will make a great gift. Check it out at

  5. You need to send these links to some ad folk and have them fuel your fire. you do this blog now and hold a job it would be nice if this could put bread on the table and get paid for something you love to do. you must be careful not to end up hating what you do because you need the bread.
