Officer on trial for failure to register as sex offender
Twenty years after Daniel Casas Jr. received deferred adjudication probation for child molestation, a detective with the Bexar County Sheriff's Office went to his China Grove home to notify him that the law had changed and that he needed to re-register as a sex offender.

Court Weighs Gay Marriage
Skeptical Justices Challenge Both Sides; Kennedy Warns of 'Uncharted Waters'
I have a theory to explain why so much attention is paid by politicians and Big Media to the whole gay marriage thing. I believe it is part of the same conspiracy to distract the citizens from the Government's total incompetence at most functions, and its steady assault on our basic freedoms under the Bill of Rights - to privacy, the right to own guns and ammo,and not to have our property confiscated, and the right not to be killed by a drone because the president decides you are a threat to national security.
If all the homosexuals and lesbians in this country got married, how many people would that be? How could it possibly affect national security, the economy, the job market, or anything else of consequence? On the other side, if gays are free to live together in peace, why do they have to force the rest of society to give an official stamp of approval on conduct the Bible clearly condemns?
But the right wingers and Bible thumpers are obsessed, and the lefties and MSM are equally fixated, proving Eric Hoffer's old point that the extremists on each end are basically alike, true believers.
