Almost all of the attendees in Mountain View were in their 20’s and 30’s. Ray, the host, shared stories of watching voters’ eyes light up during a speech by O’Rourke at her favorite record store in Dallas. Yi Ding, a 32-year-old programmer at Apple who’s starting his own company, said he found O’Rourke’s willingness to discuss liberal issues in conservative Texas refreshing — not to mention the spontaneous road trip. “Who does that?” Ding asked with a grin. “How many politicians dance around the issues, while he comes out and tells it like it is. He’s honest, he’s human.”.

DEAR ABBY: I have been working hard to advance in my health care career so I can give my family a decent life. I have worked my way up from poverty, paying my own way, earning my degree through the military and sheer determination. I have reached a point where I would like to enjoy life a little more, but my husband thinks I am being “materialistic.” We fight often over my wardrobe spending. I believe the clothes I wear, mostly nice skirt suits and heels, are part of my job and image. I believe it has helped me to get ahead. I don’t buy overly expensive items, but they aren’t cheap. I wear the things I buy for years and have a $200-a-month budget for what I may need, even though I don’t always spend it.
