When I was growing up in south Texas, we weekended in a small town called Rockport, where my parents kept their boat. Rockport had a weekly newspaper called 'The Toast of the Coast Herald', and the cover of the Herald was always full of the week's DWI mugshots. The editor of the Herald's goal was to publicly expose and humiliate the week's drunk drivers - a tactic I wholly agree with and enjoy seeing implemented. I've always thought we should bring back the public stocks, and this was a media-based version of that.
Looks like that spirit is still alive and well, as bustedinaustin.com has taken that concept and run with it, albeit with all manner of criminal. Stuff like this is why, even for all its faults, I loves me some Texas and insist on going back there to spend my remaining years.

Being a born n' bred Texan, I'm certainly no stranger to the concept of the buried-school-bus-underground-bomb-shelter-slash-wine-cellar-slash-secret-clubhouse, but stashing a stolen bulldozer underneath a golf fairway? That's a new one.

Having raised a couple of kids through the Phoenix schools, I can safely say that Arizona education flat out sucks. No wonder this state is so screwy.
I grew up and had my schooling in Texas, where a quality education is job one. They know how to properly motivate the faculty.

Geostationary Banana Over Texas is an art intervention that involves placing a gigantic banana over the Texas sky. This object will float between the high atmosphere and Earth's low orbit, being visible only from the state of Texas and its surroundings. From the ground the banana will be clearly recognizable and visible day and night; it will stay up for approximately one month.

A new measure has been entered into the legislature that will allow blind people to hunt.
That's right. Blind people with guns, shooting at any game that sighted people can hunt. What could possibly go wrong?
