I heard the county got Bishop a souped up Mad-Max style pickup, complete with a Tow 2 missile setup in the bed. Go get 'em, Tommy Boy!!!!

Sorry, but why do they want to put up a statue to the guy that fell to his death? Because he was a great guy? Then do that at the cemetary. Or the firehall.

Statues at the Ballpark should honor those who made some very significant contribution to the Rangers. Falling over a rail in front of your son doesn't make the cut in may book.

Yes, the county voted against secession. And then went on to hang suspected Unionists during the time of the Great Gainesville Hanging. A witch hunt rounded up a bunch of suspected Unionists, Peace Party guys, etc. John D. Hale led a citizens committee for justice to "try" the bad guys.
five of them were deemed sufficiently bad to be strung up.

(Tainted Breeze is a good book about all the hangings that went on at that time)

Re: Aggy. Go for it. I think they will get killed, but who cares. Their bigger problem is that they already have a defecit budget in the Atheletic Department. You think a 30 million Big 12 exit fee is gonna help that out any? (and keep that straight face on when you Ags preach academics) CFB turned into a money game long ago. If UT, aTM, 'Bama or other schools play the game and reap TV networks, fat TV contracts, and come up with bigger and better ways to pour cash in, so be it. But they all do it, or wish they could.

I guess ole Thunder Tom won't be out as much since he didn't want to drive a truck. Might be a good thing.

It was Obamas fault.
