Buying State of Texas Surplus Property

From the Comptroller’s office:

Surplus property listed on this Web site is available to state agencies, political subdivisions, and assistance organizations, not to the general public. The owning agency determines the price for each item while it is listed here. The first state agency, political subdivision, or assistance organization agreeing to the price is entitled to the property. During the 10 business days that the property is posted on this Web site, a transfer to a state agency has priority over any other transfer under rules adopted by the commission.

Fairly decent inventories of stuff.

On the Gripping Hand

Krikorian reader at The Corner slams one of the authors of the GREATEST BOOK OF ALL TIME:

Give him or her a healthy reading habit (even if he never advances beyond Harry Potter, Larry Niven, either of the Kellermans and Tom Clancy) and his four years at McDonalds will result in a far better education than almost all colleges currently deliver.

Jonah's Conservative Buzz-Kill

From today's JWR:

Committed conservatives, meanwhile, find themselves at a disadvantage: They advocate smaller government for everybody — when Americans generally (including most Republicans) want smaller government for everybody but themselves.

One of our more sane local Ron Paul supporters (Jeff Ward of KLBJ radio, as opposed to Alex Jones) says it like this, "Liberty and equality for all, special privileges for me."

The Looming Tower

Finished it today in my second sitting. Amazing. I never, ever dog ear my books but did for this one, many times.

I still can't believe the attraction. Still seems like every time I check the meter, folks are looking at these posts.
