|A panel of three federal judges in San Antonio ruled against the State of Texas using the gerrymandered Congressional redistricting maps passed this summer by the Texas Legislature. The panel has instead mandated a temporary district scheme for 2012 for the U.S. House districts that changes the shape of local District 26 which covers most of Lewisville. District 26 will now take in less of Tarrant County, none of Cooke County, and will add portions of Wise County.|

|Texas Monthly magazine has the "Bum Steers" each year, and it's an issue you can't miss. Problem is that it only comes out once a year. The People's Republic of Seabrook (RIP) had the DUMB@$$ awards, but these don't specifically apply to Texans.|
WhosPlayin.com is now awarding the "Texas Dim Bulb Award" to people and entities in Texas that exemplify the worst of our state.
Recipients of the Texas Dim Bulb Award are an embarrassment to the state and its fine citizens. They dishonor our collective heritage and contribute to the negative stereotypes that sometimes make our beautiful Texas into a laughingstock.
For this reason, recipents of the Texas Dim Bulb Award are deemed as honorary foreigners, and hereby stripped of any and all privileges pertaining to their Texas residency.
