Re: Everybody’s Lying About the Link Between Gun Ownership and Homicide

Statistics tends to get over my head quickly especially when the pointy heads talk about regression analysis, chi square, bayes theorem and the author's R^2 thingy.
I am comforted by Mark Twain who dismissed it all with his famous saying...lies...d..... lies.... and statistics... :lol:

Re: TX:7 year old girl murdered in Wallisville in drive by shooting or road rage

Guess I would need a diagram of the location and the vehicles to understand all of this. Did he think the little girl was somebody else and he shot her by mistake? Doesn't make any sense.
Will this evil thuggery never end?

Re: TX: San Antonio 7-11 clerk shoots robber

The 711 Corporation has a long history of firing employees who use firearms to defend themselves on the job. I find that appalling--course they are a private corporation and free to do that. Not sure how they will handle the employee in this case.

Re: TX:7 year old girl murdered in Wallisville in drive by shooting or road rage

Wow! This case went south quickly for the Al Sharpton-type race-baiters. How did the suspect's description go from middle-aged white man with beard in red pickup to black man in rental car?...hmmmm.

Re: School activity involving homeschoolers

I think home schools in Texas are considered private schools that do not require a certification. Not sure about the "co-op" designation--just seems a way to structure a home school or private school. There was a Texas Supreme Court case several years back authored by Justice Barrow that recognized ...

Re: Dallas Under-Funding Police to the Point Where Life-Threatening Calls Go Unanswered

We stay a night at "Candlewood Suites" Love Field by the Stemmons Freeway before we catch our flight. Thug area? Or safe? It's not the worst part of town, but not the best either. It's not far from some of the seedy "night life" areas. You'll see individuals and small groups wandering around at all...

Re: Killed in a Midlothian church

This is one of several outrageous murders that have not been solved. Another is the "Delphi Murders" of two young girls murdered near a walking trail in Delphi, Indiana. They have a photograph of that suspect taken by one of the victims and even a voice recording where he ominously commands, "Down t...

Outstanding Motivational Book

I have read many motivational and self-help books but I ran across one this week that stands out from all the rest. David Goggins is a retired navy seal--he been there and done that. The language in the book is coarse so be warned but don't let that get in the way of the wisdom he imparts. Once I st...

Re: UNT Dallas School of Law suspends student, possiby in part because he owns a firearm

This young man is learning about the adversarial system up close and in person. Looks like he is getting a raw deal and it sounds all quite Kafkaesque. He should certainly see an attorney who specializes in "school law" and consider his options. Before I read this link I had never heard of the Unive...
