The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: Since it’s wall-to-wall coverage in media, I want you to understand what is the very legitimate argument by plaintiffs in the Amarillo federal court against the FDA and it’s pushing of a drug for chemical abortion. Despite media shading the plaintiffs, the case, and the judge as pure partisan political actors, there is a serious issue at stake and it is about government agencies following the law and their own rules all of the time, not just when it suits the political views of the people involved.

  1. I generally defend the right of anyone asking any question. But I do not like your implication that elected officials in Lubbock County have been protecting game rooms and are on the take. I was at the Commissioners Court meeting on Monday. Sheriff Rowe never said he was against an ordinance, just that he understood it to be in a research and development stage and had no idea it was going to be voted on until late last week. Therefore he and the representative from the DA’s office said they would not support this ordinance at this time. That argument sounds reasonable. Using that a justification for implying someone is on the take sounds like CNN talking about Tucker Carlson.
