#1 web search term: Nick Berg Nick Berg-related searches
are so prevalent that they dwarf all other searches, including the consistent

though I'll vote for Kerry, I'll have to be honest. Kerry's daughter
looks like one of those transvestites that hangs around on Broadway
near the adult book store. There I said it: its too true. Anyway,
if I was single I'd try to date the Bush girls and if I was a vice officer
I'd try to bust the Kerry girl. Your Listener,
Our local school board in ... Ingram has decided to introduce real guns
into the 7th grade classroom as teaching aids. The attached photo shows
the speaker waving around a semi automatic pistol in the class room
while at lease six real weapons are pointed at the students. The School
Board maintains this is good for the students. ...
The photo is from the front page of the Kerrville Daily Times
from last week.
As you know San Antonio has a lot of taggers and graffiti
artists around the city. The City of San Antonio has programs
on its website to encourage citizens, civic groups, and businesses to
get involved in eliminating graffiti. ... Toyota is ... promoting its
new Scion line of vehicles. ... one commercial features a so-called
community profile which is really a speech about how graffiti
allows the narrator to express himself and become an active
participant in the community while asserting his individuality
comparing ownership of a unique Scion vehicle to the illegal practice
of spray painting murals and words on property that you dont own.
I wonder if Toyota would pull the ads if San Antonio government and
civic leaders complained
or if our government and civic leaders
would even bother.
The news break keeps talking about the "Pooch Pals Program"
where the Arsenal Post Office station is going to have their residents
put stickers on their mailboxes letting the mail carrier know there
is a dog on the premises. This is supposed to reduce the number of dog
bites to the mail carriers.
My father is a mail carrier and he had worked for the Arsenal Post Office
and had been bitten by a dog while delivering mail. The house he was
delivering the mail at did not have a dog when he was knocked over and
bitten on the leg.
The dog that bit my father was supposed to be in its backyard behind
a chain link fence three blocks away from where the attack took place.
The owner claimed his dog had jumped over the chain link fence.
The next time my father saw that dog, it was in its back yard behind
the same chain link fence that it was known to jump over, and the dog
was still not chained up.
I don't see how the Pooch Pals Program would have helped anyone in that
situation. My dad still has a bad scar and I'm sure that dog is still
jumping its fence. I Hope that dog's owner gets a sticker for everyone
in the three block radius of his house, maybe put a picture of my dad's
scar on the sticker too. Now that would be awareness!
A person who is over 65 and owns their home under the Homestead Act
cannot be forced to sell their home or have it taken for taxes. The
law says that they can defer or postpone any delinquent taxes as long
as they live in it. The time they may be in the Hosp. or a nursing home
is considered an extension of their home.

Ten-Foot Poll RESULT
did voters overwhelmingly say NO to three 3-year terms for the mayor
and council members?
is a trial of the "Sparklits" poll software. Several
people reported being blocked from voting because the poll mistakenly
told them they'd already voted. No one reported being able to
vote more than once. Trial will continue.
