Some thoughts about events in Ferguson: Ronnie Smith of Garland, Texas asked these questions in a letter to the editor in the Dallas Morning News. “Will burning the very buildings they shop at change the verdict?

Those of you who have been following my blog for some time know that I am against the TransCanada XL Pipeline that is scheduled to open soon. Many of us in Texas fought to keep the pipeline from coming through, but alas, the pipes are already in, just waiting for the green light from Washington […]
