When home-school numbers don't add up, the questions about drop-out rates come flooding in. (again)
Call it, selective morality, based on financial needs. Funny how that works.
Supreme Court nominee Kagan, cautious middle-of-the-road pick or anti-military lesbian? Next question: should lesbian even matter, from a legal perspective that is. (Obviously it matters from a social perspective, where many -mainly on the right- feel that a "gay" agenda is marching forward.) And what does her selection say about representation?
Houston Restaurant BB's Cajun Cafe is expanding with a new downtown location. Congratulations to the Bassler's.
And here comes the Grand Parkway again, ready or not. (Need it or not, like the idea of paving over the Katy Prairie or not....)

I'll give Bill White a C-minus for his white paper on Rick Perry's spending. He's right regarding the Texas Enterprise Fund, dead-solid wrong on Perry's refusal to take federal unemployment funds and then raising taxes, (an issue that I've previously blogged about in some detail) and wrong to continually release wonkish "policy papers" that few Texans are going to read, or even care about. (IMO what White needs to guard against is the impression that he's lecturing Texans on how they "should" be. People like to think they're voting for a candidate who understands them, not one who feels he's smarter than them and can continually talk down at them instead of speaking with them.)

My guess is the vote will be disqualified, and something will have to be done in the Lege to straighten this mess out.
Would someone please go explain the concept of commuter school to the
