Re: Houston Zoo

I'm pretty sure it is still posted, and if I recall correctly, the signage is very hard to find. I believe that the AG has noted that the sign is unenforceable because it is on land that is owned by the city or county, but there is no recourse to force the zoo to take the signs down because they are...

Re: Houston West Quadrant Breakfast

I'm in, depending on details. Would really prefer something on I10. There's a great little place in Old Katy that we eat at every Saturday. Snappy's on 90 in the same strip center as Cane Island Outfitters. We love the place, but that may too far West for others. I agree that Kelly's is awesome.......

Re: Weatherford Man Uses AR-15 To Stop Car Burglar

Looks good, but again, there's a potential for disaster here. Your actions in a situation like this have a lot of implied meaning. For example, he knocked on the window of the car with his AR and told the would-be thief to "get out of the car." OK. But what was he going to do if he DIDN'T...

Re: Houston West Quadrant Breakfast

OK, everyone... I'm the one who stirred up this dust storm, and I've not done anything with it. Unfortunately, I had a few overseas trips, and was not able to follow through in a timely manner. So let's try to kick this off again. Syntr & Charles are right - Kelly's in Meadows Place would be a g...

Why do you say 'Not ADT'?. Can you share information as to why that is a bad company to use?

Oregon: Second Amendment 'sanctuary counties' sought

Re: Old school carry!!

We have GOT to have a beer together some day. I could talk about this stuff all day long. I've got to get down to Houston sometime this spring to talk to the French consulate there about obtaining my French passport. Maybe we can have dinner or something. If we can pull that together, I'd love to d...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

One thing I wish would get changed: We need to have passport control to LEAVE this country, not just for entering. I travel the world over, on a regular basis. I often have ~30 international trips per year. Some are great locations: Singapore, Thailand, Oman, Italy; and others remind you of every Ja...

Re: Shooting Situation at Rolling Oaks Mall San Antonio

No, we don't know the sequence of events. But I guess we can conclude that every armed robber acts the same way and is very predictable. If you leave them alone, they always leave peacefully. That's how I was trained. If you arrive at the scene of an armed robbery and the suspect is still there, do...
