Texian Logic

My husband coined a new phrase.

"According to Fox7 Austin, State Representative Tony Dale (R-Cedar Park) sent a letter to Governor Greg Abbott (R) saying that current Texas laws, combined with how the federal government grants rights to refugees, would allow the newly arrived Syrians to arm themselves immediately."

You may use it without royalty payments.

BREAKING: Sandra Bland's family's attorney just reported

on Lawrence O'Donnell's show that the Texas authorities asked them to return her body from Chicago to Texas for another autopsy. It appears that they screwed up the first one. Fortunately the family will not do that. Lawrence suggested that they get some Federal involvement. This whole thing STINKS!

Kamala Harris has a challenger - (snort)

Apparently Thomas Del Beccaro is challenging Ms. Harris for Barbara Boxer's senate seat.


I knew him tangentially in Lafayette, California where we used to live. He is a complete sleaze bag. He actually tried to hustle a married friend of mine when her daughter played on the same elementary school soccer team as his daughter. He ran for lots of local elections - lost them all. Good Luck! Looks like the Dems will hold another senate seat for the foreseeable future.

I just returned from a week in Paris

Being in the City of Light - which is so joyous and sparkling during and after the holidays - was wonderful. And then it all changed last Wednesday with the brutal and obscene shootings. We stayed in that night, but we had to go to Notre Dame on Thursday morning for a minute of silence and shared mourning. It was raining and we grieved at the horror of what happened. I left my daughter there for a college semester abroad and I pray for her protection and for the healing of the French people.
