Texas License Plates

October 13, 2008

The beautiful new Nissan 350Z.  Note the front.  And the grill.  And the license plate.  Wait — there’s no place to put a license plate.  But Texas law requires you to display two license plates, one in the front and one in the rear.  I guess you can just throw it on the dashboard, though that might prove perilous in an accident.

UT Bans Freedom of Signs

Every 4 years we have a leap year, Summer Olympics and a Presidential Election.  And college students want to express their (liberal) political views.  But doing so with signs in dorm windows is a no-no at almost every college campus.  So why is there an uproar at the University of Texas?  Because no one is complaining about the “Will Flash For Cash” sign in one window?
When using the link to The Daily Texan online, read the bottom post (which is actually the first post).  UT President William Powers Jr. has temporarily suspended the ban.
