Still, Houston could take a lesson from its own history and allow the power of competition to police the markets, rather than the city.
This column is incredibly deficient and its author incredibly lazy.
It’s an interesting old story (from a self-interested industry source) but a more modern example—electricity deregulation—has resulted in far higher prices.
It is rare in a working environment,” he’s argued, “that someone says, ‘Johnson, I need a market analysis by Friday but before that I need a compelling account of your childhood.’
Surely, no trial judge would want an innocent man to plead guilty, no matter how much delay and expense he might be causing.
Blue v. State, 41 S.W.3d 129, 132 (Tex. Crim. App. 2000) (plurality op.).
Oh, if only!
Because the sender’s account had been registered anonymously, investigators had to use forensic techniques — including a check of what other e-mail accounts had been accessed from the same computer address — to identify who was writing the e-mails.
What an amazing glimpse of the surveillance information the F.B.I. may have: user IP addresses from large e-mail providers.
Another reason why I’m completely insane: I have considered switching the manner in which my computer syncs contacts to eliminate an icon from my menu bar.
The third icon from the left is for Apple’s built-in contacts sync. The application must be open for contacts to sync with Google, and there is no built-in option to hide the icon from the menu bar.
If my Mac synced my contacts via iCloud, the sync app would not need to be open and my menu bar would have one fewer icon on it.
(And I don’t care for one of the numerous UI-hack applications. I gave up UI-hack applications a long time ago, after Kaleidoscope.)
Do we have a right to expect tomatoes that taste like tomatoes and to have them grown in sustainably? It might sound like a ridiculous question. These are for-profit enterprises operating on private land and dealing with the difficulties of distribution and the vagaries of the market. But it’s not so outlandish to think we should have some collective say in what is farmed and how. After all, between 1862 and 1934, the Homestead Act transferred 10 percent of all land in the United States from federal to private control, and it’s federal money that pays for much of the roads and irrigation systems that make farming in the valley so profitable.
How on Earth could that ever be a ridiculous question?
“No so outlandish” to tell the corporations what we will and won’t tolerate from them regarding the food we eat?
But what strikes me most is the weakness of these justifications. The Homestead Act? Really?
Sounds like they have one hell of an operation there in Brazos County.
At the hearing on the motion to revoke the Brazos County community supervision, the prosecutor called the appellant’s probation officer to the stand to ask her how the appellant had violated the condition of community supervision that prohibited committing other crimes. The appellant objected on the basis of hearsay, and the trial judge sustained the objection. The prosecutor made no further effort to introduce evidence of the theft. Finding that the State had failed to meet its burden of proof, the Brazos County court denied the motion to revoke.

A few reasons why Maggie was amazing today:
-She grabbed at her diaper and then walked over to the bed, where I change her, and raised her arms up, signaling she wanted up for a change.
-She learned to unplug my iPhone from the charger and take it away. When she was done, she tried to plug it back in to the charger.
-She saw me put together an Ikea chair for her, then went and found the Allen wrench and tried to use it on the chair’s screws.
