Laughing at Rick Perry O Day- D Student May get Academic Building Named After Him

Unfair Park Perry attended the school from 1968 until 1972, making exactly two A's against nine D's and one F during his four-year tenure. He was more successful outside of the classroom, where he was a member of A&M's corps and a yell leader. When Perry's transcripts were first made public in 2011, a college classmate told the Huffington Post that Perry wasn&......

Ruminations of the Easily Amused Dec 17 2014

President Obama restores full diplomatic immunity with Cuba. Republicans race to the fainting couch “In a deal negotiated during 18 months of secret talks hosted largely by Canada and encouraged by Pope Francis, who hosted a final meeting at the Vatican, Mr. Obama and President Raúl Castro of Cuba agreed in a telephone call to put aside decades of hostility to find a new relation......

Religious News and Notes from the Distaff Side- Dec 17 2014

Most of the references below are included because I believe in separation of church and state. I was raised as a southern baptist, which religion, until it was hijacked by extremists in the 1980's, also taught separation of church and state as integral. Should a government employee  be allowed to discriminate on the basis of religious belief?  Using prayer to scam people w......

On Salon (me) and Writing about the Glen Rose Medical Center (501a) Slush Fund

Because I want to make this perfectly clear that there are some sexist old men who want to try to claim that I, an adult female, cannot possibly write my own posts  with my own intelligence and under my own steam on my own blog site without some other man telling me what to do or doing it for me.  I wrote a letter under my own REAL NAME to the Glen Rose Reporter on the night of August......

Audio from Somervell County Commissioners Court Nov 14 2014

Thanks to Candy and Brian for getting this put up on the Somervell County Commissioners Court site.  For months the latest audio one could get was from April.  I noted that the audio was chunked into many many pieces, guessing that the recording equipment has voice activated technology, so I put all the pieces together for one audio clip, here. And here's the agenda that go......

Emails Between Me and George Darrell Best re: 4b/Land of the Dinosaurs

I heard informally the other day that the City of Glen Rose was never able to recover the $80,000 that the Glen Rose Economic Development Board recommended they invest in Land of the Dinosaurs. This despite NO CONTRACT being written before okaying the money and a check being written, and despite the auditor telling the 4b board that this should be a promissory note and NOT an  investment......

Video from City of Glen Rose Town Council Meeting Dec 8 2014

Incidentally, I also have audio of the meeting here.  There was a very interesting discussion on a plat on Bridget St that had requested a change through P&Z. The problem, as I understand it, is that the city has an ordinance that says that each house in the city must have its own driveway AND have X feet amount of frontage. But in the case of one householder, her property didn'......
