  1. Council Member Gonzalez is supportive as well.
  2. With the rest of the gulf coast about to be ravaged by this oil spill, this may be one positive that lands in Galveston's comeback lap. Possibly a good time to invest in Galveston.
  3. It was not a kickerish place. It was a kind of cooler disco type. Dance music but not necessarily disco music. Popular top 40. Most dance clubs back then didn't allow athletic shoes. They weren't yet "cool". Cooters was kind of a casual, unpretentious dance club in a time of flashy/trashy dance clubs. The people that worked there were like family, the owners took care of their employees. I'm betting that if you find one long time bartender to contact, they are still in contact with alot of the other employees. Long time friendships were forged there. When Randy's opened in west HOust
  4. Please don't discriminate against the pitbull based solely on it's looks and tattoos, unless you do the same with Samoan and tattooed humans. If you have a pitbull barking and snipping or a dachshund barking and snipping the behavior is what should get them thrown out, not their breed (race). Jenni's Noodles will be welcomed in the Heights by all those who don't need to have complete control over every aspect of their environment, including the noise of children, the grimaces of the judgmental and the happy faces of dogs. Lightening up leads to Peace!
  5. Not really. Mac n cheese can have all kinds of meats, seafood and vegetables. Has mega possibilities of pastas. Fettuccine alfredo is a sort of mac and cheese. I, for one, can't wait.
  6. Word on the street...buyer loves the house. Hope that's true.
  7. Heights proper is not corporate/big box friendly, so this is where they go. I am glad, I don't want them in the Heights, but I do want them. I think it is a great use of the space. I would be a regular if there was a LaMadeliene or Cafe Express. I frequent, the Target, PetSmart and Washington Heights Veterinary Clinic, and often run by the TacoBell/KFC there (which I never ever do other times or other places). I have been to the Chili's and the Freebird. I am so glad Bryan has opened his Southwell's there. His food is fabulous. He grew up as a Houston Country Club manager's son, so he l

    The Uptown Line

    The city doesn't build the Galleria towards aesthetics...the Uptown Association does a lot of that through it's own funding.
  9. I have heard good reports on Dessert Shoppe which is in its soft opening. There is a dessert shop of some sort opening on White Oak but that may be a ways off. Pie in the Sky on 19th has a help wanted sign out, so they should be pretty close to opening.
  10. Doubting the Mardi Gras beads helped him any. Several months ago, I called the police on my neighbor when he was beating up his live-in girlfriend. For the next several days, each time I would walk down the street to go to my other neighbor's house to feed her dogs, he would yell at me from his porch, "stay out of my business" or "stay off my land." I ignored him. Then one day, I rushed home because I was very late for feeding her dogs, and my street was lined with police cars. They were there to protect the young lady while she got her things out of the house. I parked and as I was walki
  11. Anti-Tax, IRS hating Lone Wolf Terrorist. Narcissistic...not ill or unbalanced. Methodical and manipulative. I know mentally ill, I know despressed, I know narcissistic. This one was narcissistic. Didn't take responsibility for one thing being his fault. Blamed others for everything and left his family further in debt than they were evidently about to be. Total disregard for others' wellbeing and without empathy. Whole different thing. These are the Timothy McVeighs, UniBombers, David Koresh, Eric Rudollph. Smart. but no feelings. His imperfections were about to show and that was more than h
  12. HA... my friend that I quoted is in the middle of dealings with IRS on several years worth of audits. So while he condemns Stack's actions, he does believe the IRS should be audited for their heavy handed tactics. But he believed that before Stack's actions. Stack didn't tell anybody anything that wasn't already known. He just killed a father of six to lay blame for his own failings. Thank God it wasn't more. One other point...I understand feeling powerless in the types of situations that MARKSMU refers to, but this guy didn't want to pay any taxes. His beef was that he didn't want withh
  13. My friend summed it up thusly and I fully agree, but would add...classic narcissist. my guess at this guys narrative. probably back in the 80's he gets with some people to b*&^h about the tax code. they find an inconsistancy and decide to try to apply it to themselves. he gets hard headed about it, becomes somewhat obsessed and drives friends and family crazy. all during this time, life keeps happening with all it's assorted crap. the irs has consistently rejected his application of the tax code. over the years interest, penalties, and enforcement actions pile up. then we have the crash,
  14. If you’re reading this, you’re no doubt asking yourself, “Why did this have to happen?” The simple truth is that it is complicated and has been coming for a long time. The writing process, started many months ago, was intended to be therapy in the face of the looming realization that there isn’t enough therapy in the world that can fix what is really broken. Needless to say, this rant could fill volumes with example after example if I would let it. I find the process of writing it frustrating, tedious, and probably pointless… especially given my gross inability to gracefully articulate my
