Re: Quick Hits

Ada Fisher is the one what should be resigning.

She has been a stalking horse for Katon Dawson in the RNC race, she can't get over that loss, and seems to spend more time attacking her fellow Republicans than doing something constructive. Enough, already, Ada!

Re: Quick Hits

I haven't read the anti-texting bill, but from the way it's being reported...it just doesn't make sense. You can access the internet but not text? I have no idea how you enforce that...does the law enforcement officer have to look at your phone to determine whether you wrote "brb" or were checking the latest on UtD via the Internet?

Re: Quick Hits

Fixed it. Thanks.
