No, he didn't spell it right Margaret. No reaction. Just the facts. For Brandon. Yes, Delta's Pinnacle Airlines (brought in the Northwest Airlines merger) is true.

Papa Murphy's. Reported that as well. Opened two sites ...

Congressional Republicans Write Themselves Out of History

By: lubbockleft | Blog: Lubbock Left

History will remember that zero Congressional Republicans voted for the economic stimulus package that passed the House today. Zero.

If we believe Christ is a Liberal, are we to think Satan is a Conservative?  After all, Conservatives want people to have jobs, to work, and to support themselves and their families.  Does this make Conservatives evil?

Farewell to a comfortable stopping place -- a library!

By: Anonymous | Blog: Center Stage

My wife was frustrated and upset when she passed on the news to me.The Godeke Library, the Lubbock branch at 6601 S. Quaker Ave., must close as mold has been discovered inside the building.It was opened in the late 1970s in an effort to offer convenient library surface to a growing residential area.As Jill put it, "I cannot believe there won't be a library in the south part of the city."Surely, the need for a replacement library branch in S or SW Lubbock will be brought up for discussion.
