Comedian Leo Gallagher was rushed to the hospital from Lewisville's "Hat Tricks" bar, after experiencing chest pains.

The U.S. Department of Justice rejected the Texas voter ID law. The letter from DOJ does a great job of calmly and rationally explaining why the law has disparate impact on minorities, based on data that the State of Texas provided in defense of the law. Attorney General Greg Abbott is now gearing up to challenge the constitutionality of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 itself. We wrote this piece a few years back, and stand by it today for all of the same reasons.

It may be cheaper to simply provide housing to the homeless than to pay for the consequences of keeping them on the streets. This ruling from Politifact explains the costs.

We promise our unpaid contributors this. If AOL or some other company ever buys the Lewisville Texan Journal for a crapload of money, we'll kick a pile of it your way to be fair. For now, we'll just keep being thankful that the bills get paid each month so we can keep bringing you the LTJ. In 2011, it cost us $892 to produce this website, and bring you all the content. Ads and donations covered that amount, and we ended up with a $54 surplus carried forward into 2012. If the Lewisville Texan Journal is useful to you, please consider making a donation, using the link in the right column. We'd also love for you to "Like" us on Facebook.
