"Our state is getting a raw deal, we're missing out on a huge chunk of income and giving an unfair advantage to coal over oil and gas," said Karen Hadden, clean air coordinator of the Sustainable Energy and Economic Development Coalition, a Texas-based sustainable energy advocacy group.

Parents Need to Lead Children Into Education That Works

I was in a hotel restaurant recently and asked the waitress if she had children. Yes, she said, she was a divorced mother of three. Then I asked her if she was in control of her children's education. She said she was. "Did you pick the schools they go to?" I asked. "Did you approve the curriculum they're learning?" "Heck, no," she said. "I can't even talk to who's teaching them."
