Just Another Day

Trolling for news...

Near El Paso, a 7-year old boy has been suspended from school because of his hair. It's not too long, it's got a "design."

 The kid's parents now say they may "home school" the boy until his hair grows out.  Here's another idea,  shave his head and teach him the valuable lesson that Mommy and Daddy do stupid things every once in a while, sometimes to their kids.

In Corpus Christi, authorities are investigating why a 45 foot long,  4 foot high chunk of concrete fell off a parking garage.  It smashed a car.  No one was inside.  Personally,  I'd be a little wary of parking at that about shop 'til you drop.

In the Rio Grande Valley,  two men have been charged with murder for stabbing a man 11 times with a screwdriver.  They were apparently upset that the victim tried to stop one of the men, a 27 year old, from "hitting on his 15 year old daughter."   The murder happened at a baptismal celebration.  

Welcome to the world.

It could be weirder I suppose.   In Seattle, three bisexual men are suing a national gay-athletic organization, saying they were discriminated against during the Gay Softball World Series. The men say the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance said they were not gay enough to participate in the series.

Not sure what measuring stick is used in that test.

Back within the safe confines of Texas...

In Dallas,  groups are upset that the planned George W. Bush Presidential Library may displace some longtime residents...a community of feral cats.   Apparently there is a group of people devoted to caring for wild cats on the Southern Methodist University campus, and they are worried putting up a Presidential Library will force the cats to move from their homes where they are "brought food" every day.

Look what the students dragged in.

Did you miss this picture of the Texas Governor kicking off events at the Texas Motor Speedway over the weekend?


Ya gotta love Texas.

Thanks for playing.
