Bill KIng, former Mayor of Kemah, became a political columnist at the Houston Chronicle when his op-ed about hurricane preparedness struck a profound chord with the community. Since then, his regular column has covered a range of topics, all with the same fact-based approach. Bringing together the best of King’s work, Unapologetically Moderate explores topics ranging from the demographic revolution sweeping America to the pressing need for Social Security reform to the place of religious faith in politics. King’s reach extends from Houston’s local government scene to the Austin statehouse and the halls of Congress. Whatever the subject, King’s dispassionate, fact-driven approach to hot-button issues sets him apart from other political observers. His clear explanation of complex subjects provides welcome perspective on topics that have become muddled by partisan interpretations.
