Austin Area Walmart Site of Early Morning Shooting

Another miscreant of society who probably doesn't have any responsibility in life because he's at an Austin area Walmart at 4:30 a.m. Sunday poppin' off a few rounds, 18 year old Soloman Onwukaife will undoubtedly unleash terror on society again, once he's let out of jail.

Unless we start giving the perpetrators a sentence befitting the crime, many more morons like Onwukaife wait in the wings to prove that shooting innocent people makes them a tough guy.

Never would have thought twenty years ago, that my television viewing today would feature a weekend marathon of "Murder By The Book", "Murder Mysteries", "Anatomy of a Murder", etc...

Heck, I grew up with "Columbo", "Cannon", and "Barnaby Jones"!

Texas Prisons Housing Less Inmates These Days

Hate to rain on a parade of allegedly good news, but not putting in my "two cents", would make this story feel rather empty.

Six feet tall and 300 pounds sounds like a good size to play football. But apparently that's too big at age 12, and in that case league rules say the boy will have to stay on the sidelines.

Fox Sports Southwest did a story that many media outlets are covering, on the 12-year old boy from Mesquite, near Dallas, who was told after a weigh-in Sunday that he wouldn't be able to play.

Texas Man Takes Plea, Gets Five Years For Murder!

Since when is a life only worth five years "at the rock", and why did prosecutors agree to such a lowly sentence?  I've read about pot smokers getting a greater stretch.

Me?  I'm an eye-for-an-eye guy.  Commit murder.  Pay the ultimate price.  The saviors of the death penalty will arguably contact the radio station tomorrow demanding that I be fired with an apology.  Here's the number: (936) 639-4455.

Texas ‘Voter ID Law’ Ruffling Feathers [VIDEO]

About 30 years ago in the building of another radio station, one my colleagues asked  for my opinion on then prez Jimmy Carter.  Knowing absolutely nothing about politics, I could hear my "Poli-Sci" teacher saying "...never discuss religion or politics at work".

Today, I know even fewer politics, that is to say, not qualified for any legiti or non-legitimate discussion.  Nevertheless, if you are a registered Lonestar state voter, you could possibly have a viewpoint regarding the VOTER ID Law,  which is currently under fire.

Governor Rick Perry in East Texas for the 4th

Before heading back to Lufkin to observe the fireworks extravaganza at Ellen Trout Zoo, I took a side trip to Big Sandy.  Located at the crossroads of U.S. Highway 80 and Texas State Highway 155, the city isn't all that "Big", but on Independence Day, it became larger than life itself.
