Gun owners, be aware Delwin Jones is an opponent of your gun rights. He was the only republican house member to vote against the concealed carry law in Texas and has opposed gun owners on other bills as well. Support your gun rights. Defeat Jones.

There are rumors that an institute of higher education is attached to the athletic fields. It is a university with a name of 3 words. However, the local media refuses to use the 3 words together, as if the elite are afraid of those who strive for excellence in education. For those who have never heard the name of the institute, it is called "Texas Tech University". It is not "Texas Tech Raiders", or "Texas Tech Athletics". I have a challenge for media employees brave enough to issue the truth. Use the full, proper name of every educational institute. Be it John Q Public Elementary School, Lubbock High School, South Plains College, or Texas Tech University. If it is too expensive for the media to print or broadcast the last name of institutes, then they can save even more money by leaving off the last names of local politicians and athletes. I don't care if schools have sports as a small "side dish". However, it appears that the schools in the Lubbock area have sports as the main course, receiving funding per capita in excess of campus average, and receiving publicity in excess of 100 fold for the student average. The movie "Idiocracy" was set 500 years in the future. However, it appears that today's print and broadcast media are virtually the same as in the movie.

Now the worshipers of football can have their holy communion with bread and alcohol, inside the temple. It is now complete. The stadium meets every definition of a church. It has those who pay their tithe, songs for their worship, fellowship, idols to praise, the holy team spirit, and now communion with beer and hot dogs.

How can you in good conscience place that poor girl that was killed by an LPD police officer in the same context as irresponsible college behavior?? The more that is reported, the more I am sure that the LPD is covering up an officer's reckless contribution in a young person's death. This is absolute proof that the media is no longer unbiased. From day one the headline in bold was LPD Officer Involved in Wreck. The mention that the other driver was barely clinging to life was just in the small print. Thank goodness for him that you are there to help with his public image before the grand jury. I bet you are all very pleased that the other driver can't speak her side of the story.

Although the one who the cop killed, is just as dead, there is NO Cornell Avenue in Lubbock TX. There is a Cornell Street that has a 2600 block. It would be nice if LPD would put the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, in their reports to the courts, and to the public. If their reports have errors in the locations of events, I wonder about their truthfulness in other details as well. I hope there are others out there that hold "Lubbock's Finest" to the highest standard of truth, and subsequently demand the removal of those who are unwilling or unable to comply.

I don't want a lot of hate mail, this is just my opinion. There are kids who do feel the heady freedom of college and go a little nuts until they settle down and get on with the business of their education. By any standard, this is a tragedy for these families, but most kids don't show up on campus, flip a switch and turn into "wild and crazy guys" just as they don't turn into sex offenders when they set foot on a campus. Even kids with the best parents will exhibit irresponsible and destructive behaviour if that is what they want to do. Yes, universities have a certain amount of responsibility to keep kids safe, but they cannot be expected to be - nor should they be - nannies. I would like to see universities take responsibility for crime on campus by turning over kids who commit crimes on campus to the local law enforcement agencies and quit trying to save their images by sweeping crimes under the rug.

If the drunk driving convicted public official would have been fired by the corruption task force, they would have been doing their job. By keeping the corrupted drunken convict, the task force is a sham. The DA for the Lubbock district would not prosecute a corrupt city attorney. It took an outsider to obtain the 10 felony indictments on someone who the Mayor Robertson went onto public record as being a friend. The local corruption task force is just as much a sham in this city, as in Austin. I hope the Governor denies millions of dollars to the corrupt government systems here as well, until they fire their scammers, with cause (and NO Severance Packages)

The music was mediocre at best. The few lyrics that were recognizable from popular songs, were drowned out by drums and an overamplified base guitar. In my opinion, it sounded like garage bands. The songs could have been saved, if the guitars and drums were at half volume, so that the singing could be appreciated. I admit that there were a couple of nice sings, however, I could not hear vocal inflections from any singers. I do not know if it was because none of the performers could actually sing, or if some musicians union had rules against singers overpowering drums. In my day, the instruments were supposed to complement the singing. On Saturday, the instruments overpowered the singing. I received 2 free tickets, and my GF and I are still wondering if we got our money's worth. Also, there was no warning sign at the entrance gate that smoking was allowed. My GF was still coughing this morning from her reactions to that smoke.

If the government is going to subsidize one school they should subsidize ALL schools... just another failure in the system, yet this article is praising the program!!!!!
