Good thing he's a lawyer. He can file his own appeals. ;-)

I dunno, but does it have to do with the phrase "the outer limits"?

Re: Alamo Heights: Officer fatally shoots student

Cops aren't lawyers (generally—maybe a few are), and police spokesmen say only what they are authorized to say—which is simply their job description.

Re: Cities improperly posting 30.06 signs?

I was involved in the construction of Enron Field and it wasn't a real nice part of town back then. Has the area changed? Oh, yeah. It's yuppie and tourist heaven now. If you haven't been there in a dozen years, you wouldn't recognize the area. IIRC, it was originally called the Ball Park at Union ...

Minute Maid Park in Houston. Sign appears valid. I didn't pull out a ruler—that would be weird (though you can use a U.S. quarter coin to measure an inch). The physical premises of Minute Maid Park are owned by the Harris County-Houston Sports Authority, which is a taxpayer-funded public entity: htt...

Re: Taking the "friend" out of Friendswood

The moral of the story is that crime occurs everywhere, including what we think are "safe" neighborhoods. I've seen this all my adult life. Decent people move from decaying urban neighborhoods to pristine suburbs, and their own children turn into the problems that they fled. Meanwhile, th...

Continuing the good clean fun, two teenagers, age 17 and 18, were stabbed in a fight behind Wedgewood Elementary School. Police said it was a "drug deal gone bad." Everyone involved, including the stabbing victims, fled the scene. The victims were later hospitalized. Two suspects are at la...

Re: This day in history - November 9

I made the comment about being stationed at a NATO airbase right after SeamusTX made the original post in 2009, but somehow the date on the post has been changed to 2013. In the software field (which I work in) we call that a bug. I remember when you posted that comment four years ago. This thread ...
