TX voters: Old white men are already working to create unfair districts. Take Latinos to get IDs. http://goo.gl/nGESJ

Man as Pinnacle of Creation Moment: This weekend, I boarded a series of long, metal tubes with powerful engines and thin, oft taped-together metal wings. Each time I stepped into those metal tubes, they hurled themselves down a hardened surface at speeds no natural being can reach, then threw themselves into the air, expecting it to catch them.

It did.

They blazed through the thin layer of gas that the mass of our world holds in place, travelling fast enough to easily crush the fragile bodies inside them to jelly. We passengers remained safe until we reached our destination where, at lesser but still breakneck pace, those metal tubes instead threw themselves at the surface of our planet, again expecting the air to catch them, but this time to bring us all to a gradual halt.

It did.

We are the Kings of our world. With time, drive, and the passing down of knowledge and ideas, there is NOTHING that Man cannot do.

I am a voting Texan and am against SB537. If you are my legislator and supporting it, you will not receive my votes in the future.

TX morality legislation at its worst. Call your rep (or this rep) to complain. http://t.co/hQprLk6o

Below is the surprisingly civil letter I sent using the Rep's web form.  I may call one of his offices later today and recite it.

Why is Representative Zedler trying to assault and kill women?

Rep. Zedler's proposed bill requiring real names, addresses, and phone numbers to be displayed by dancers at adult businesses would give potential criminals an easy way to stalk, harass, assault, and potentially kill women.  They are currently afforded the anonymity and protection of stage names, and of being able to have patrons escorted out of a business if they're asked for personal information.

The Representative is suggesting that we not only make this information available to the criminal-minded, but offer it on a silver platter.  Any criminal could simply suggest that a dancer would "be in some pretty big trouble" for not letting him examine her license, and the stalking would begin.

I can't see any way in which giving criminals (or even the average, law-abiding citizen) personal information about every worker in a business helps or protects those workers from being the victims of crime.  It can only make crime easier.
