Most of these are because some driver hears the but thinks he can beat the even going around barri cades or stopped These are like the drivers who fail to yield at yield signs that speed cutting into forcing other drivers to slam on their brakes to avoid an These same drivers come up behind you while you are driving the speed lim it and they have to pass you in a nopassing Then there are the ones who run yellow and red lights and others on cell phones not paving Maybe if we had less drivers like the trains wouldnt have to blow their horns so long and so Edwin Preiss New Braunfels Outdated

was probably a sound Is the ISO system still the best way today With a world of improved technologies and automa we should reconsider our ways of manage There are many independent school districts within Texas and the boundaries of these dis tricts are now overlapping each They continue operating under their own designated command structures and which stran gle our individual homeowners with excessive property tax In most these people in this structure do not perform daily any of the following Teach drive school coach athletics or maintain school In simple they are not where the rubber

Braunfels Dont outlaw all 4way stops some speed up flow of traffic Just a short note to comment on an April 14 guest columnists critique on the condition of the streets in New I am in agreement with many of John Bryants but disagree with his statement that all 4way stops should be I find a lot of 4way stops actually speed up traffic flow as opposed to traffic It was stated that John Bryant was a newcom er to town but did not say from I find that local drivers are generally courteous and take turns at these Perhaps Bryant is from the Midwest or the Northeast I have lived in both areas where a 4way stop is an invitation to play David Johnson New Braunfels United Government PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH 1600 Pennsylvania NW 20500 SENATE KAY BAILEY HUTCHISON Russell Senate Office Building Room 284

is taking a weird form this Politicians say nice things for political rea sons and then revert with a vengeance a sort of political Tourette they cant help what they Tom of all recently issued a fatwa on the need for good a con cept so bizarre there is no meta phor for It is itself a metaphor as weird as the time Tom DeLay gave us all a lecture on In his new role as the Emily Post of DeLay inform ed It is unfortunate in our electoral exacerbated by our adversarial media cul that political discourse has to get so that its not just but motives are Did someone question his motive in taking an allexpens espaid vacation from a lobby ist This would be the same Tom DeLay who Screw the when he learned Bob Dole had cut a deal with Clinton to end the government shutdown caused by Newt Were in We dont have to negotiate with the Same as We are We have an agen We have a I want to repeal the Clean Air he said in You dont want me as an DeLay to Jacqueline wife of a business partner who sued When the local Republican sheriff hired DeLay spent to defeat This whole thing about not kicking someone when they are down Not only do you kick him you kick him until he passes then beat him over the head with a baseball then roll him up in an old rug and throw him off a cliff into the surf below That gem was in a DeLay staff email about Clintons I cant afford you as a brother any DeLay to his brother
