Get money to groups fighting to end racism and get cookies. Win-win situation. —

Several studies have concluded that the BLM protests haven't increased the spread of COVID19. Here are some reasons why. —

Wondering about the COVID19 Race/Ethnicity data of cases vs. fatalities in Texas. For cases the largest group is Hispanic, but deaths it is Whites. Not sure why that'd be the case.

It seems Texas educational standards are likely to admit sex exists, but not gay people, I guess that's progress? —

Glad to see Rotary adding environmental projects to the list of focus areas that can get global grants. These are the smaller less reported projects that will add up to big gains for our planet. —

A solution to replace all the confederate statues being torn down all over the US South.

Didn't realize that Texas had designated funding to start building a new state park in North Texas.

Our county is having a "Community Prayer" to deal with racism in our community. It is like Republicans don't even realize people constantly mock them for offering "thoughts and prayers" while doing nothing substantial.
