Two out of three
Texas law enforcement departments were more likely to search blacks
and Hispanics than whites at traffic stops in 2003, according to

at least as likely as blacks or Hispanics to be found with illegal
items such as drugs or weapons.

"Why should we subsidize Louisiana and Nevada when we can

let Texans decide whether to allow seven casinos in urban areas,
two on Gulf Coast islands and three in targeted economic development
His measure, Senate Joint Resolution 18, would require a statewide

Terry O'Quinn finds belated stardom on "Lost"
blocking outgoing email From my ISP SATexas.com: "SBC
has started doing port filtering (mail blocking) on most of their
services. If your mail sending has broken" here's why
I am sure you know that Roadrunner did the same thing in January
and again in early February which caused me to change from a really
great email service to the Roadrunner email service on the assumption
that Roadrunner would not block themselves. The excuse I finally
dug out through other sources was the same "spam" control
issue discussed in the SATEXAS information on your web site today.
Roadrunner did not notify me (and I presume anyone else) that
they were going to do that. All I received was a message that
appeared on my email page when I attempted to send messages. That
message read, "Sending of password did not succeed. Mail
server responded: authorization failed."
My email service was "down" for 10 days in January and
2 days in February with absolutely no prior notice from Roadrunner.
I know you advertise for Roadrunner so you will not knock them
in any way but, as I look back at the whole situation, I wonder
if that was really a ploy on their part to get people to switch
to Roadrunner email if they also had Roadrunner High Speed Internet
service. It worked for me, but I feel "used" by their
system. I really did not want to drop my other email server but
I could not afford to be down 10 days at a time.
If you are going to "boil" SBC you might as well throw
Roadrunner into the pot with them.
Incidentally, I had SBC High Speed Internet Service, had nothing
but problems with them, found it was down more than it was up
and finally dumped them for Roadrunner about halfway through the
SBC contract. I have told a number of people to consider avoiding
SBC if they are looking for a high speed Internet connection.
So, you can see I do not have any particular love for SBC here.
Thanks for the
email, Emmett. I had the exact opposite situation in that I used
to send email thru a Roadrunner account, but it quit working last
year, and I had to shift to the server that hosts my websites
at SATexas.com. That's where I have remained without problems.
