 Despite living in Texas, going to Texas A&M, and coming from a republican area he is not a [[Republican]]. However neither is he a liberal or [[democrat]]. In fact he didn't participate in the last election as his professor rescheduled a test for election day. This isn't necessarily a bad thing as it gives him the moral trump card regardless of the presidential outcome and result of said presidency. Besides, Tex is destined for Washington DC in fall of 2009 for an internship so change will come to DC then anyways. ​ Despite living in Texas, going to Texas A&M, and coming from a republican area he is not a [[Republican]].

-Tex is a prolific (or prolific in board standards) sports writer. He is also the CEO, owner, president, and emperor of his sports website ​www.texassportscolumn.com,​ which like so much else, has fallen on the wayside. Luckily he is able to jusify that with his work at the student newspaper where he covers random sports stories but also handles summer editing duties. He recently started the third incarnation of his column writing in the form of a word press (shudders) blog. It can be found here http://​bsebastian.wordpress.com/+Tex is a prolific (or prolific in board standards) sports writer.

-Initially weary of politics he, like everyone else, took the dive when he was bored unaware what this would do to his schedule on days where he was not so bored. Tex began his career in politics as a co-founder (along with [[HUCK]]) of the [[Confederate Wank Party]]. After starting the CWP he took the title "Duke of Texas" and joined the [[ah.com ​peerage]]. By 2009 however the CFP had suffered from lack of involvment and Tex was beginning to think he had escaped politics. Then [[LightInfa]] sent him a fateful PM asking for his support for the [[Federalist Federation of Federalists (FFF)]] Party during the upcoming Landsraad elections. Instead of pledging his support, Tex outright joined FFF and was greatly involved in the increased numbers of users that swelled the FFF's ranks giving them a landslide victory in the Landsraad. To reward him for his work, Tex was granted a Landsraad position by the FFF in the American Peerage.+Initially weary of politics he, like everyone else, took the dive when he was bored unaware what this would do to his schedule on days where he was not so bored.

Perhaps he has hit a characterization snag or perhaps it is all a gigantic scheme to acquite more readers and to be liked.
