Lately Texas has been getting its share of bad press, but not all is bad in Texas. The linked article describes new funding, "The Board of Regents for the Texas University System announced Thursday that it had approved $2.5 million in funding for a combat casualty care research center, according to a release."

I was a bit surprised to learn that trauma injuries were the leading cause of death and disability for us civilians under the age of 44. Then I got to thinking, DUis, reckless driving, gangland shootings, etc. Yep, I could see that.
