Houston Crime Report

Think the death penalty in Texas is a bad thing? Read this. Still think it’s a bad thing? If so, you are terminally stupid, not to put too fine a point on it.

Success for one man in a fight against crime. The line “deputies said the shooting probably will be referred to a grand jury without charges” catches the eye, though.

A guy gets his car stolen, chases and shoots the thief, and gets brought before a grand jury? He ought to get a medal, not a trip downtown.

Too Much Gay-ness

Recent polls of ordinary Americans indicate that there’s too much gayness being displayed in the media and in society at large.

Who does this surprise? One can hardly turn on a TV show without their being a gay theme or at least a gay character in it. “Not that there’s anything wrong with that”, according to Jerry Seinfeld, but of the hundreds of people I know, the number of gays numbers in the single digits.

In other words, this group of people and their chosen behavioral patterns are over-represented in the news. At last the recoil one would expect is taking place.

“That’s why God made the remote — if you don’t like what’s on the television, change the channel,” responded David Smith of the Human Rights Campaign, a gay-rights advocacy organization.

If there was only something else to watch, David. Now that the people are revolting, perhaps I’ll even be able to watch TV again.
