I believe it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant- H L Mencken

Bigotry on its way out, at least through the court system- December 21 2014
Will Texas be next? Texas Tribune, via the Gilmer Mirror

On Open Records Inspection in Texas - 2014
Someone asked me about this the other day about how to find out public information from a particular government entity. I've long been posting public records on this site. Tried to look a bit ago to see just when I started doing it and I honestly can't remember for sure, but probably sometime in 2008. I had been going to various government meetings and recording them starting in about 2006......

Quick Housekeeping Note for Somervell County Salon- 12/20/2014
Somervell County Salon has been getting a huge amount of spam lately.I read something recently that said the number of spambots on the planet now outnumbers real people.
I'm a little tired of fighting it this week, so am going to run an experiment. For the next while, to read the posts and comment, you will need to be registered and logged on. I hope to clear out spammers who use the ......

Ruminations of the Easily Amused 12/19/2014
About to go into the "Get things done before the end of the year" mode, so posting may be light, at least from me, for the next couple of weeks. Will be posting the top posts of the year before Jan 1. Today it's overcast and I'm chilling with the dogs, who seem pretty happy to be lounging in the living room.

|Hey! Somervell Hospital District - ASK THE Attorney General for an OPINION
Redux on Spending Tax Money in Hood County*s Pecan Plantation- Dec 2014
Money continues to be spent from OUR Somervell County Hospital District into ANOTHER hospital district, Hood County Hospital District. Why are we taxpayers paying even ONE CENT for services in a clinic within a rich, gated community, in a hospital district that pays NO TAXES while we pay to put services there, including hospital equipment. Were Pecan Family Medical Center a privately run clinic th......

Standing Up to Bullies and Terrorists- Sony vs Hollywood
If the noble experiment of American democracy is to mean anything, it is fidelity to the principle of freedom. It is to champion the idea that all men and women are endowed with certain unalienable rights—free to think our thoughts, speak our minds, associate with whom we want and express our feelings without fear that a tyrant will silence us. Slavery is not only the physical restraining ......

Glen Rose ISD Audio-2014
Thank you, Doug McClure and Dana R.
I have for a long while wanted to listen to some school board meetings.I, as you all know, have long believed that simply reading minutes of a meeting does give enough information about what happens at government meetings. For some, it's not possible to attend meetings. For me, I want to stay informed as much as possible as a citizen, so really appr......
