I'm Chris. I'm currently an underpaid civil rights attorney living with my lovely wife and my adorable dog in Austin. I went to Mizzou for undergrad before spending a few years in Houston in law school. You should drop in and say hi.
We’re going to Toronto tomorrow through Monday for a friend’s wedding and it looks like we’ll have a decent amount of free time that we aren’t doing wedding stuff.
Where should we go? Where should we eat? Our hotel is in the “Entertainment District/Downtown Core” according to Yelp.
Oh, and I’m not fucking walking around the outside of the CN Tower.
How can you vote in the Republican primary if you’re not a registered republican?
Texas doesn’t really have party registration. On primary voting day, you can just show up and vote in whichever primary you want. Then, you’re considered to be registered for that party for the remainder of that election cycle. So if there are runoffs, you can only vote in the runoffs for the primary in which you voted, but then all party registrations are reset for the next election year.
It was super uncomfortable voting in the Republican Primary today but there were no local Democratic races that mattered and I just could not resist the opportunity to throw my support behind the Republican Gubernatorial candidate who legally changed his name to SECEDE (yes, in all caps).
Commandancy of the Alamo
Bejar, Feby. 24, 1836
To the People of Texas & All Americans in the World
Fellow citizens & compatriots
I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country VICTORY OR DEATH.
William Barret Travis,
Lt. Col. comdt.
Are there people who eat grape nerds? Why isn’t the whole box just strawberry?
