“[Christie Craig] Writes About States of Arousal” Cries the Texas DOT

Obviously, the Texas Department of Transportation doesn’t like to think of their state in any kind of arousal when it comes to Christie Craig.  The delightfully, kind and thoughtful Christie (who resides in Houston) apparently “messed” with the wrong state when she titled her new book Don’t Mess with Texas (which goes on sale today).

The TxDot has officially filed a lawsuit over their trademark motto (which is an anti-litter campaign) against the author, the publisher (Hachette Book Group) and Barnes and Noble.

According to the Houston Press: 

“The book,” TxDOT’s suit says, “contains numerous graphic references to sexual acts, states of sexual arousal, etc.” Selling it at Barnes & Noble, which sells many TxDOT materials with the slogan, would cause irreparable harm, the agency says.

(I love this part of the Houston Press article.)  “States of sexual arousal” apparently include, according to the search-inside function at Amazon, such pornographic sentences as”She glanced down at his sex, still standing completely erect.”

And here’s the ensuing sex scene:

“As soon as the condom was in place, he rolled her completely on her back and was on top of her. Keeping his weight on his elbows, he adjusted his weight until things down south lined up. She felt the cool tips of the condom at her center. Closing her eyes, she pressed her head back in the pillow and waited for him to enter her.

“No. Open those baby blues. I want to see you when I first enter you.”

She did as requested and he pushed inside. Slow, easy. Even wet with want, his fit was tight, hitting nerve endings she didn’t know she had.

Pleasure exploded inside her and her entire body shook with sweet spasms of release.”

Wow!!  Thanks Houston Press for telling us why we all should be buying the book!  Christie Craig is a terrific writer who describes her writing as “sexy, suspenseful and seriously funny.”  I’d have to agree after getting hooked on Divorced, Desperate and Dating.

Apparently the TX DOT has won a similar case before.

Talk about frivolous lawsuits.  I’ve heard “Don’t Mess With Texas” used in a lot worse ways including a segment that Stephen Colbert did when I recently saw his show in New York.  No lawsuit there.  I would definitely think that the TX DOT should have a few more important things on their minds right now and you can read some of the suggestions from commenters at the Houston Press page.

TX DOT you made a big mistake in coming after a beloved author like Christie Craig who doesn’t have one mean bone in her body.  I contacted Christie, but as I suspected she’s not able to make a comment at this time with the pending lawsuit.

Bottom Line:  I only want to buy the book more now, so thanks TX DOT for all the publicity.  And I’m sure many others will also buy the book… just to mess with Texas.

    Another thing I’ve really noticed is that often for many people, a bad credit score is the reaction to circumstances over and above their control. By way of example they may are already saddled through an illness so they have excessive bills for collections. It could be due to a employment loss or perhaps the inability to do the job. Sometimes divorce proceedings can really send the budget in the undesired direction. Thank you for sharing your ideas on this web site.
