On a rainy Friday night during Rodeo, it was a lined up group of Houston's legal establishment. Party divides were not apparent, in a show of support for a book signing with former Houstonian Al Gonzales. Yes, the former White House Counsel and former U.S. Attorney General has a perfectly-timed release of a personal memoir titled "True Faith and Allegiance".

His life story of humble beginnings in Texas, to law school and a prestigious Houston law firm, to Austin and Texas Supreme Court and then to the George W. Bush White House, and finally top man at the Department of Justice will be a great read. The title says a lot. From humble beginnings Al Gonzales has always retained his humility.
