Description Ethnographic summary: Nancy Beck Young interviews former Democratic Senator Don Adams about Texas politics during his tenures in the state House and the Senate. He begins his reflections by recalling the Constitutional Conventions which started shortly after the Sharpstown scandal. The Senator compliments numerous peers that had inspired him, as well as several who were difficult to deal with. Adams also discusses his role on several Congressional Committees and details the most important bills he helped architect and pass. Senator Adams discusses the transformation of Texas politics from a nearly one-party Democratic state during his time to the nearly one-party Republican state of today. He criticizes some of today’s Republican Party state policies, such as their neglect of the “Rainy Day Fund,” opting not to pay down certain debts, and their lack of funding for public and higher education.
