The middle of May is a great time for a bit of Southeast Texas tradition. The 27th annual Boys’ Haven Crawfish and Music Festival and Giant Car Show will take place on Saturday, May 12, from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. at Parkdale Mall in the parking lot behind Logan’s Roadhouse. Some of the guests will come for the delicious food (crawfish, barbeque, hamburgers and other great choices) while ohers will come for the music.

Who says you can’t entertain your whole family for $1 these days?

I rented a couple of video games like Smarty Pants, a trivia video game, and Bowling Pinbusters, a bowling game, from Blockbuster for one buck each, and the family enjoyed a lively night of video gaming fun.

Allow me to preface this with a warning: This band is not for the faint of heart. Stunt Cock is based out of Austin,Texas and play a crushing blend of metal, hardcore, and straight up rock on their eponymous debut. The guitars come out chugging hard on the track "Wishes and Fairy tales", but throw a curveball with the almost too metal for metal guitar solos. On "Lou", the band go almost rockabilly with a raspy and rapid delivery nobody, including I, saw coming.

Unfortunately, too many Americans seem to be ignoring the fact that one of the greatest causes for the amount of debt our nation now is burden by is our two undeclared wars.

Rachel Maddow, a MSNBC personality, has recently written a book titled, “Drift.” The theme of the book is that America has begun to drift into a war-like country, too ready to engage in international intervention and adventurism.
