I began reporting on Texas politics and government in 1962. For more than 20 years, I have written a column for the Austin American-Statesman. An expert on Texas politics when I joined the Austin American-Statesman in 1978, I am now the dean of the Texas Capitol press corps. I am currently married to Kathryn Longley, general counsel for the Texas Methodist Foundation. Between us we have five children and four grandchildren.
