Combat Veteran Marine Killed By Alleged Drunk Driver

Blogger’s Note—Because I have some other projects I want to take on, I’ll be offering up shorter and more formulaic posts for the remainder of August. These posts will still be quite good and will merit your visiting the blog each day. Yet at the same time, shorter posts will allow me time to accomplish other objectives. Thanks for reading Texas Liberal.

Book Of The Day–You see above that Chicken Wearing A Pumpkin Suit is reading Making Toast–A Family Story by Richard Rosenblatt.  This book is an account of the death of the author’s adult daughter and his role at that point in helping to raise his daughter’s young kids. It’s a short book written with as few words as possible and with each word having impact.

Link Of The Day-— The death toll and the impact of the floods in Pakistan continue to grow. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent has information on how we can help these folks in Pakistan. Look at those people suffering from these floods. Are they in any less distress because they are Muslims? No–They are our fellow world citizens who could use some help.

Texas Link Of The Day– A Texas Marine who had served in Afghanistan and Iraq was recently buried in Rosenberg, Texas after he was struck and killed by an alleged drunk driver in Fort Bend County last week. Fort Bend is part of the Houston area. The Marine’s name was David Stidman.

There have been a number of reports in recent years talking about the high rates of drunk driving in our Houston area. Local sheriffs and police departments should consider additional resources to combat this problem, and people should do all they can to prevent people they know to be drunk from getting behind the wheel.
