  1. Prisoners released from the TDC in Huntsville get a Greyhound ticket to that location in Midtown . . . state policy is to send them back to the location of their conviction; that's why it looks like a prison yard.
  2. Funny how the smokestacks were add to the second photo . . . presumably to impart a sense of industrial prosperity. How times have changed.
  3. Why not look into the possibility of using High Fashion Fabric's old location? . . . at Louisiana @ Rosalie street. You can tap into the emerging home/decor businesses emerging near that area.
  4. The other Pinoy place in Clear Lake is called "Tia Lolengs" . . . on hwy 3 between Clear Lake City Blvd. and Eldorado blvd. it's a combo grocery / cafe / video rental kinda place.
  5. I love Southland Hardware, but if you open a competitively priced store, with as varied a selection, then I'll be there. . . maybe a resonably priced version of Restoration Hardware?
  6. I have several grand development ideas, but need help / advise on how to protect them. I'd like to shop them around, but was concerned that delevopers might take them and run with it. Anybody out there that might have some suggestions? Thanks,
  7. I went to the American Le Mans race Friday, and enjoyed it. I too liked the open paddocks and access to the Le Mans teams and vehicles. I had misgivings about the race in the parking lot . . . thought it might turn out to be a royal disaster like the IFEST; but it turned out great. The night time race was also cool (figuratively and literally too!). Can someone burn me a DVD of CBS's broadcast (hint, hint texas911).
  8. Good one! Jose! For those that have a difficult time understanding why some are offended by the Spanish Star Spangled Banner. Imagine the outrage if a group of individuals decided to insert the U.S. flag into the top corner of another flag . . . say Puerto Rico's. Do you think there might be an uproar about altering their nationalistic symbol? A country's symbol is sacred, and should remain un-molested. Keep the Star Spangled Banner in english.
  9. How do you know I'm on the Titanic . . . I could be on the Carpathia, or in Tahiti for that matter. Just trying to keep everyone honest here, no matter your race, religion, politics, or sexual preference, just be honest. I don't mind people criticizing Bush, (I'm not a Bush appologist) I just want the criticism to be based on facts. And here are the facts: Bush hired Tony Snow to be the White House Press Secretary. That's it.
  10. So, nmain, lets say that you worked for Ben & Jerry's ice cream, and then you leave that job to go work for the Clinton administration. . . can I then claim that the Clinton admin made Ben & Jerry their official ice cream? NO! That will sound as stupid as " . . . the White House has announced FOXNews is now the official press office for the Bush Admin . . ." psssst, your bias is showing. BTW, I'm guessing Tony Snow COULD have worked for Bob's KWIK Mart as a gas station attendant, does that make Bob's the official White House beer run location?
  11. I liken it to being inside a burning house . . . I either get out, or I stay inside. 2 choices. If I see a drowing child, I either help or don't help. 2 choices. See where I'm going with this? Of course there are exceptions to that rule, and I am open to suggestions . . . (read: very sincere statement). Red, what would you suggest the US do . . . act?, don't act?, or your shade of grey. (please explain).
  12. nmm, I believe you meant the following quote: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan. And I did, and then God would tell me, George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq. . . . And I did." The above quote turns out to be one of those internet urban myths. If you go back and read through the transcripts of his June 03 meeting with Mahmoud Abbas, it turns out that the myth probably resulted from an english translation of an arabic translation of Bush's spoken english. By the way, can you tell me where Christians believe that it's their duty to destroy all of mankind? Whether God "spoke" to Bush or not, there is no such belief that Christians must start Armaggedon (there are many that prepare for it, but no Christian feels that it's their duty to destroy the world). I take great offense that you feel that Christians are the same as the fanatical "Twelver" sect that Ahmedinejad subcribes to . . . a sect that even the Ayahtollas of Iran believe to be fanatical. Liberals out there, please answer this question: Should the US stop Iran? Or, should the US sit on it's hands? . . and please be honest and list the pros and cons of each.
  13. nmm, Iran is not just a threat to the USA, but to the entire world. "Divine mission' driving Iran's new leader By Anton La Guardia (Filed: 14/01/2006) As Iran rushes towards confrontation with the world over its nuclear programme, the question uppermost in the mind of western leaders is "What is moving its President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to such recklessness?" . . .The most remarkable aspect of Mr Ahmadinejad's piety is his devotion to the Hidden Imam, the Messiah-like figure of Shia Islam, and the president's belief that his government must prepare the country for his return. One of the first acts of Mr Ahmadinejad's government was to donate about
  14. DJ, look into statements that Ahmadinejad made about Israel. Look into his statements about the return of the 12th Imam. The Iranian president believes that it is his duty to hasten the return to earth of the Imam . . . but the process will only start with Armageddon. THAT is why a nuclear Iran is so dangerous. http://analysis.threatswatch.org/2005/11/u...ng-ahmadinejad/ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml...14/ixworld.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_al_Mahdi
  15. Ed, my statement was based on facts . . . no imagination involved here. Under Communist rule, the vast majority of the population did not / could not own cars. The public transportation system was the ONLY way to commute across town. . . thus the high ridership figures. I agree that the subway stations are opulent, I've seen them myself (during the bad old days). Each one was designed to look completely different from the next. Looks like you were there post-Communism.
