McLennan County prosecutor may face discipline after firing gun in DA’s offices
A McLennan County prosecutor who shot out a window in the district attorney’s offices Monday while admiring a colleague’s new gun may face disciplinary action, District Attorney Abel Reyna said.
First Assistant District Attorney Michael Jarrett said he asked fellow prosecutor Landon Ramsay if he could see Ramsay’s new Glock .40-caliber pistol about 2 p.m. Monday.
Jarrett said he asked Ramsay if the gun was loaded and was told it was not. Jarrett pulled back the slide, he said, to double-check if it was loaded and didn’t see a bullet slide into the chamber.
Hey, Jarrett - didn't they teach you in CHL class that guns are not toys and all guns are always loaded?

Disgraced ex-journo fights for Calif. law license
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The deceit of disgraced former reporter Stephen Glass in the journalism world was so extraordinary that his tale was turned into a critically acclaimed movie, "Shattered Glass."
Glass made up all or parts of 42 magazine articles published in the New Republic, Rolling Stone and elsewhere in the 1990s when he was in his mid-20s and a rising literary star. He then went to great lengths to cover up his deceit by creating business cards, a fictitious Web site and having his brother pose as a source when editors began scrutinizing his work. Two years after he was drummed out of journalism in 1998, Glass graduated from Georgetown University's law school and then proceeded to pass California's notoriously difficult bar examination in 2007.
