The neighbourhood's going to hell!
Yesterday afternoon, a gun man fired 2 shots into the open door of a flat next to the little Sainsburys round the corner. He then sped off by motorbike. Armed police later were all over the place, roads blocked, buses diverted and raided the flat.
That's all I know so far, there is no word of any injuries.

If you've got nothing to do, don't do it here.

One of our trendy coffee shops is run by a couple who have likened abortion to the Holocaust. As this place has been visited by Austin's hip community for quite a long time, people are taking to the Internet to let us all know that they are brushing their teeth to rid their mouth of pro-life beverage detritus.

The campaign to boycott is growing by the hour. What a world we live in.

Though it does beg the question: why doesn't he or she buy ALL the lobsters and release them?

I read an interview with him recently where he talked about the move. Not hard to understand in a way. Austin is/was the cool place to live in Texas if you weren't a classic Texan but like anything good, it became over popular and now musicians can't afford to live there anymore. It was still a shock in a way.

Major pot bust at the international bridge. They attempted to smuggle it in fake limes.
