By: chrisvanwagenen | Blog: Open for Business

Former Lubbock businessman Curtis Jordan will open his first "Five Guys Burgers and Fries" within the next 60 days in the former Moes Southwest Grill location at 19th and Quaker Avenue. The second location, where Popeye's used to be at 82nd Street east of Frankford Avenue, will open in the next 90 to 120 days. Two other locations, still unidentified, will open shortly afterward. Later, Chris. Menu: Hamburgers, fries, grilled cheese and hot dogs. Am I missing something here?

The President Who Wants to be King

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

President Obama wants to rule over poor miserable subjects and not rich prosperous citizens. This increased separation from his subjects will give Obama a greater sense of omnipotence.

Rick Sentilli, America's new hero

By: chrisvanwagenen | Blog: Open for Business

Give it up to CNBC's Rick Sentilli, who had the guts to scream out from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange Thursday what we're all thinking. As he put it, "who here wants to pay for their neighbor's mortgage". The trading floor boooooooooooooooooooooooed. Good for him. It's time to talk up, speak up and get these idiots out of Washington. Way to go Rick. It was all over the news and will be played all this weekend. Made Rush Limbaugh look like a puppy dog. And you wonder why I have an attitude. Enough is enouh

Hallelujah, it's finally baseball season. The weather should be good all weekend so there's no reason not to get out to the Law for the beginning of the Dan Spencer era for Tech baseball. The season starts Friday at 1 p.m.

Still waiting on Blue Burger

By: chrisvanwagenen | Blog: Open for Business

As much as a lot of you like to discuss it, Blue Sky Burger has still not filed a permit to build, let alone go before the site review commitee at the city level. Well, I guess we could throw some raw meat on the sidewalk of 98th Street near Quaker Avenue. Maybe that would attract them. Later, Chris

one expensive bookstore

By: chrisvanwagenen | Blog: Open for Business

Barnes & Noble finally released the go ahead for its new two-story bookstore at South Plains Mall. The $2.5 millon project gets underway next month, if it hasn't already and will be completed by October. Meanwhile, what becomes of South Plains Plaza? Yuk. Two major tenants gone and from I've heard, could be three. Let's hope not. Later, Chris

Dreadnought of Chicanery!

I got nothing of eternal lasting interest to jabber about today. (But do I ever?) So instead, here's some panels from the origin of Bob Burden's surrealist superhero, the Flaming Carrot:

Lubbock Needs an Animal Shelter

By: lubbockleft | Blog: Lubbock Left

What happened to Lubbock's plans to build a new animal shelter? Lubbock's current animal shelter (pound, really) is not meeting the city's needs and is actually a health hazard to any animal that enters the place. The walls are made of porous material filled with every kind of dog and cat disease out there. The ventilation is poor. The cages are overcrowded. Approximately 1,000 pets are adopted from the facility each year, and the Humane Society of West Texas finds homes for approximately 1,000 more through their pet adoptions every Saturday at PetSmart.
