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 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.

Not only that, a well-put explanation on why we Texans get all pissy if you put beans in your chili.

Thanks to Texas' stringent election deadlines, Libertarian Bob Barr is the only person on the Texas ballot in the upcoming election. Obama and McCain missed the boat.

Man, I miss living on the gulf coast. I often think back on the weekends my friends and I spent on the beach, drinking crap wine, burning sofas on the bonfire, stumbling across severed limbs. Good times.

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.

Wes Pemberton thinks he may have a world record. He’s submitted a hair on his leg as the world’s longest leg hair. A hair on his calf measures about five inches. The world record is 4.88 inches.

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?
