Rick Perry, in Switzerland, touts Texas drug courts

Jan. 24, 2014

Austin American-Statesman

By Jonathan Tilove

Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday that he thinks states ought to be able to experiment with drug policy, but that he opposes legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana use in Texas, where he said the use of drug courts to find alternatives to incarceration for low-level offenders has proven successful.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, as part of a panel on the “drugs dilemma” that also included Juan Manuel Santos, the president of Colombia, and former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan, Perry said he feared entirely removing the penalties for drug use would send the wrong signal, and cited former Rep. Patrick Kennedy’s recent criticism of President Barack Obama for suggesting that marijuana is no more dangerous than alcohol.

Greetings From Recoveryland

November 8, 2010

Newsweek

Joel Kotkin

Where can you go to escape the recession? Try any of these 10 places. Oh, and be prepared to wear red.

Like a massive tornado, the Great Recession up-ended the topography of America. But even as vast parts of the country were laid low, some cities withstood the storm and could emerge even stronger and shinier than before. So, where exactly are these Oz-like destinations along the road to recovery? If you said Kansas, you're not far off. Try Oklahoma. Or Texas. Or Iowa. Not only did the economic twister of the last two years largely spare Tornado Alley, it actually may have helped improve the landscape.

NEWSWEEK has compiled a list of the 10 American cities best situated for the recovery. These are places where the jobs are plentiful, and the pay, given the lower cost of living, buys more than in bigger cities. In other words, places unlike much of the rest of the country. The cities, most of which lie in the red-state territory of America’s heartland, fall into three basic groups. There's the Texaplex—Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston—which has become the No. 1 destination for job-seeking Americans, thanks to a hearty energy sector and a strong spirit of entrepreneurism. There are the New Silicon Valleys—Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; Salt Lake City; and urban northern Virginia—which offer high-paying high-tech jobs and housing prices well below those in coastal California. And then there are the Heartland Honeys—Oklahoma City, Indianapolis, and Des Moines, Iowa—which are enjoying a revival thanks to rising agricultural prices and a shift toward high-end industrial jobs.
