When the Blog Went Live

My father-in-law, George Phenix, is a bona fide Character in Texas. Right-hand man to one of the state's greatest senators, owner of countless local newspapers, recent past publisher of "Texas Weekly" (the go-to source for Texas Government news and gossip), and author of the book "When the News Went Live" about how news coverage of the JFK assassination changed the media forever, George is a treasure trove of stories and insight.

He's started his own blog now, and I'd encourage everyone to check it out. The address is and judging by the first post, I think we've got a winner on our hands. Head on over and say "howdy", you surely won't regret it.

Been there. Blogged there. Loved it there!! George is fabulous, and this first posting is the way the "old-timers" wrote -- interesting, to the point, painting a beautiful picture with words and never, ever wasting anyone's time. Definitely visit with George. You'll be glad you did. -- Denise
