Who is more humble? The scientist who looks at the universe with an open mind and accepts whatever the universe has to teach us, or somebody who says everything in this book must be considered the literal truth and never mind the fallibility of all the human beings involved?-Carl Saan

El Paso Times
The Hazlewood Act covers college-tuition costs of Texas veterans. It also allows them to pass along their unused benefits to their children or their spouses.
Citing growth in the expense of the program, Sen. Brian Birdwell, R-Granbury, and Rep. John Zerwas, R-Richmond, proposed only allowing veterans who have served at least six years in the military to transfer their benefit......

Liberal *Agenda* |
Although this blog, Somervell County Salon, has various top level posters and commenters, and we don't all share exactly the same opinion, my blog trends liberal. I, *salon*, am a liberal and have always been proud to be. Because I don't believe that people can be defined in black and white terms, I also consider myself fiscally conservative. I wrote about this some years back You Say Libe......

Duggars are not only bizarre but immoral- Son Josh Duggar molested his sisters|
Ugh. It's not just that the Duggars are the biggest moochers in the world while wanting having endless children subsidized by a voyueristic television show, it's this.
The Duggar family apparently knew about their eldest son’s alleged sexual misconduct since 2002, the police report states, but did not take action until a year later. And a formal investigation into the allegation......

Amazing. Actress and Ageism
The Duggars are sure some crazy people. ......

I assume Michael Honea calls the men he works with *boys* |
I know I call my donkeys and the horse that is here that belongs to my friend "boys". But in a professional atmosphere, does Michael Honea call his male coworkers "boys"? If not, then why are the female coworkers "girls"? Does Honea really have a pool of elementary school age females working at the hospital?
Now, I ocassionally, in a social context, in th......

Doesn't Glen Rose Medical Center get an 1115 Waiver? Shame on Greg Abbott and Rick Perry|
Texas, first under then-governor Rick Perry, and now under Governor Greg Abbott, opposes expanding Medicaid coverage. Wrote about this yesterday with regard to Ray Reynold's opinion on this. Not only is it shockingly heartless not to provide for those who are poor and uninsured, but the state of Texas doesn't step up to cover the pool. What the federal government did in 2012 was offer a pr......
