Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

Ironic Ignorance In Texas

Fifty years ago, August 1, 1966, a crazed gunman in the clock tower at the University of Texas shot and killed 16 people and wounded many more.  It was horrific.

Yesterday, August 1, 2016, a new "campus carry" Texas law went into effect allowing college students, including those at the University of Texas, to carry loaded guns on campus and in classrooms.

The sad irony of the August 1st date is unintentional.  The willful ignorance of Texas legislators is not.
