Good for the state of Texas

Many times during a week, I am reminded how proud I am to be a Texan. This past week, I was proud again when the state told the NFL to stow it.

Weather, or not

It sure has been cold this winter.

Just when I thought I had heard everything, I come across something stupid like this. As a nation, we are losing our guts. We are becoming wimps. The following is from YAHOO News:

We're giving away our heritage

This has been in the news the past few days: at a high school near Fort Collins, Colorado, the kids wanted to have a celebration of America.

So where's this gun news?

A DOJ Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) "special report" shows that "firearm-related" homicides fell by 39 percent between 1993 and 2011. This has been all over the news, right?
