Great Band Name Update

Yep. We’ve done it again. We’ve searched the world over, in order to bring you, the crap-reading public, the very best in band names. The lyrics to the tracks playing on their MySpace site are pretty entertaining. In a related story, the lyrics are also not safe for work. Unless you have a really cool READ MORE…

In Texas, if Earl hadn’t had to die, Wanda would STILL be married to him

Some of the policy positions conservatives take truly puzzle me. On the one hand, a classic cornerstone of conservative philosophy is that they say they want to keep government out of people’s lives. And truth be told, every time I’m careening down Interstate 10 during trips to and from Big Bend and see those flashing READ MORE…

Dear Texas Legislators:

As a public service, I once again respectfully present you with a situation that, while I don’t really understand what the hell is going on here, I am pretty sure that some of you will want to look into “it” and outlaw “it” immediately, if “it” is not already illegal here.
