Upon arrival in Texas (whether by birth or transplantation), everyone is given the middle name "Bob" (hence Billy Bob, Becky Bob, etc.) This blog is for stuff that I find amusing, useful, worth sharing (for whatever perturbed reason). This blog is CERTIFIED LOW CARB.
Note to self: remember to try the chicken at Boston Market (I always order the turkey, or the ham, or the meatloaf). Hey, that chain was Formerly Known As Boston Chicken, right?The counter worker at El Pollo Feliz smiled approvingly when I opted for corn tortillas (versus flour). Before leaving, I snagged a menu, and noticed that they also sell quail (both stew and fried); T-Bone steak; pork chops; gyros (how's that for authentic Mexican?) and -- weekends only -- Plato de Iguana (you heard right: Iguana Plate).
Michael King writes (in the Austin Chronicle): The most expensive and the most entertaining race thus far has been in CD 32 in Dallas, where 13-term CD 24 incumbent Martin Frost plopped himself into the Republican stronghold of incumbent Pete Sessions. .... Early talk was that Frost was toast – nobody's saying that now.Hey - wait a minute! I live in that district! This would explain all those yard signs (half now covered in black spray paint, by one party or the other). The big signs are called "4-by-4's" because they are 4 feet square. Even so, the Dallas sign ordinances (§ 15A-13(a)) allow even larger ones - up to 20 square feet, or 8 feet tall. I heard that the small signs cost the campaign $5 each, and the 4x4's are $30 each. Hmm. So that's where all those campaign contributions are going.

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."
