Mental health check
“Gun control isn't the answer. Mental health screening could be the beginning of a safer America.”
Don’t arm teachers
“I make that turn off of Carpenter onto Rainwater several times a day in a super-long wheelbase pickup truck. The secret to negotiating the turn (until it's fixed) is to give a turn signal well in advance and slow down enough to allow yourself to turn with precision.

“A scoreboard with a running tally of gun deaths? Ok... while we're at it, let's also have a scoreboard with a running tally of deaths due to drunk drivers. Then we can get on with the task of banning automobiles.”

Send the snipers to the unemployment line
Snipers. They’re everywhere. You turn this way, and PING! You’re hit. You turn that way and ZIP! A near miss.
This Tuesday, we decided to focus our front page coverage of the Monday night City Council meeting on the retirement of council member Marianna Keesee. That meeting was her last one, and we felt that after her years of service, both on the council and in the community, she deserved the front page. Someone even said that in a rant we received Tuesday morning.
