Another serving of Rice

Yours truly, a few months back:

Former Democratic state senator Andrew Rice, probably the only politician in this state’s history ever to name-check Antonio Gramsci in an interview, regularly got an A from the National Rifle Association. As did his opponent, most years. (Rice has since left the state, to allow his wife to do that career-advancement thing. Sounds vaguely bluish to me.)

Apparently Mrs Rice’s new position didn’t work out, because they’re back in town:

Rice will be in charge of raising money and awareness for Variety Care, Oklahoma’s largest community health center that operates 13 part-time and full-time health care locations in Oklahoma.

Rice, 39, and his family moved to Nashville to support his wife’s medical career, but he said her job there wasn’t what she had hoped it would be.

Such is life. Rice says he’s not looking to resume his career in politics: “Right now, I’m happy to be out of elective office and really don’t have any desire to go back to it at all.”

I don’t at all blame him for that. Rice replaces Marsha Funk, whose landing place I have yet to discover.

Addendum: Variety Care sent me this:

I wanted to let you know that Marsha left us to pursue another opportunity. We’re thrilled to have Andrew on board and look forward to a great year ahead.

Fair enough.
