Flooding is not new, but solving the flooding issue is much more difficult today than it was in the late 50’s and 60’s. That’s due to government regulations and bureaucratic government agencies, and to a different attitude among landowners in the 50’s vs. today.
Latinos in Texas won these historic victories on our way to becoming the state’s demographic majority in 2030. Democrats and Republicans alike need to take note. Democracy is representative, and with changing demographics comes the need for a change in the faces and identities of our leadership.
When all else fails, try asking for forgiveness, or granting it. On Saturday, Pete Davidson and SNL made amends. I had some fun. Everyone generally agreed that a veteran’s wounds aren’t fair game for comedy. Maybe now we should all try to work toward restoring civility to public debate.
Our almost unquenchable thirst for fuel has delivered great news on the job front, but it has also required rural highways to work overtime.
