On Feb. 13, U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, announced on the House floor, “I stand here as a freed slave.”

I hate to break it to her, but she was never a slave, and moreover, I was never a slave owner.

I first became aware of Lee when I watched a Houston town hall meeting she’d conducted in 2009. The issue of the day then was Obamacare.

A young woman, later identified as cancer survivor Tracy Miller, expressed her concern over the revamping of America’s health care system and attempted to ask the congresswoman a question.

But while Miller was talking, Lee took a cellphone call and ignored the cancer survivor.

I’ve often thought that if worse came to worse, I can always move to Texas. I’ll just have to make a note to avoid Houston.
