Rafael Anchía's Crystal Balls

More or less, Paul Burka of Texas Monthly anoints State Rep. Rafael Anchía as governor of Texas ... in 2018. But only after he's served as Dallas mayor. As in, "With the triumph of Dallas mayor Rafael Anchía as the first Hispanic governor, another watershed election has occurred, this one confirming that political control in Texas has shifted from Anglos to Hispanics." Only, Burka notes, the would-be gobernador's people hail from Spain -- Basque Country, which, I believe, isn't far from Carter Country? Regardless, a must-read (even at nearly 7,000 words -- is that right?) with a very handsome photo. --Robert Wilonsky
