Red Raiders headed to Oklahoma City

By: George Watson | Blog: Texas Tech / Big 12 Baseball

I can't tell you how cool it is for me to type that subject line. With two wins over Kansas State -- something I would have thought pretty improbable going into the weekend -- and two losses by Oklahoma State, your Red Raider baseball team has qualified for the Big 12 Championships (formerly known as the Big 12 Tournament) for the first time in three years. I constantly tell people that I enjoy the the Big 12 Tournament more than I've enjoyed regionals. And of all the championship-type things I get to cover as a journalist, the Big 12 Tournament is by far and away my favorite. From a competitive standpoint and mixed in with rivalries and intensities, plus the venue at Bricktown Ballpark and the Bricktown entertainment district downtown, this event is unmatched in the world of college baseball.

The Worst Editorial

By: lubbockleft | Blog: Lubbock Left

When it comes to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal Editorial Board, sometimes I agree and sometimes I disagree. However, Friday's A-J editorial is without question the worst editorial I can recall. The argument for torture is a losing argument at whatever level of detail you care to examine it. At a conceptual level, it's simple. Torture is morally wrong. Torture is illegal -- not just in the US but all over the world and in agreements between nations.

Option Four

By: lubbockleft | Blog: Lubbock Left

Tonight I find inspiration from an unlikely source: a 2008 Kansas Democratic state representative candidate who lost: Sean Tevis. Kansas and West Texas have some things in common. We share a common water source (the Ogallala aquifer), arid open spaces, and determined pockets of progressive Democrats.

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

Prayer is good.  President Obama has indicated he wishes to do good.  Why is President Obama not participating in the National Day of Prayer?
