Cut Taxes, Not Achievement

By: Donald R. May | Blog: Mr. Conservative

It has been disheartening to watch the Democratic senators again ridiculing, belittling, and chastising the Big Three automotive executives.  The hearings were once more reminiscent of the Stalinist show trials of post-Tsarist Russia.

Restaurant chains? Forget them in 2009

By: chrisvanwagenen | Blog: Open for Business

No matter what you've heard or think you've heard, there are no new restaurants coming into Lubbock this year and maybe well into next. Now let me see if I can explain this one last time. The national credit markets are shot. And here's a rude, but true fact: the last place loans are being made involve restaurants. In a recession, there the first to get slammed. Lastly, if for no other reason, most, even if they have the credit, are closing losing stores and putting the brakes on expansion. I have checked out, with little success, the rumors you've heard.

No dog in this hunt

By: chrisvanwagenen | Blog: Open for Business

A number of you have asked my take on the alcohol issue. Sorry Charlie, I'm taking a pass on this one. This is an individual issue. All I've been doing is reporting the facts and nothing more. Both sides have accused me of a slant.  Trust me, the day this issue is settled, I'll have something to say. I'm not looking to score any brownie points.

Common Sense and the Flu

By: Donald R. May | Blog: Mr. Conservative

As we enter another flu season, we are reminded that we are due for another global flu pandemic which may kill a large number of our fellow humans.  How great is the danger, and how can we protect ourselves?  The H5N1 avian flu virus thus far appears to have infected only humans who had direct contact with domestic birds.  If there has been any human-to-human spread, it has not been sustained.

Leach, Crabtree and conference kings

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

I would have sworn that Mike Leach would be named the new head coach at Washington, but apparently, the Pirate is not headed west. Leach withdrew his name from consideration on Thursday, and EPSN.com is now reporting that USC offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian will take over the winless Huskies. Leach is still being mentioned as a candidate at Auburn, where Tommy Tuberville resigned Wednesday after 10 seasons, but I can't imagine him coaching in the defensive-minded, old-school SEC.
