I'm an attorney in Texas, but I live in New York, except when I'm somewhere else (which is often). I graduated from Texas A&M University ('91) and Stanford Law School ('01), and I clerked for Judge Morris S. Arnold of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit. Before law school I was a staff reporter for the Longview News-Journal and The Washington Times, and I have also written for the Dallas Morning News and the Houston Chronicle. All of my journalism experience happened a long time ago, back before Al Gore invented the Internet. I was also a deputy with the Camp County Sheriff's Office prior to law school, and afterwards I was a reserve deputy in Camp County because it was cheap entertainment. One other reason: my badge let me carry my gun in banks and post offices and across state lines, which made it better than a concealed-carry permit. That was somewhat important because I have a lot of enemies, as you can probably tell from reading this website or my blog. I can be reached by e-mail at tyclevenger dot yahoo dot com. That's about all you need to know.
