...the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life...

Saturday, April 15, 2017


An old-school word, to be sure, but we're seeing a ton of it, lately, as when a person in power punishes the most vulnerable because of a policy he disagrees with. No reason to withhold money from business development or infrastructure when you can target those least likely to have the means or influence to push back: 
Gov. Greg Abbott stripped the county of $1.5 million in criminal justice division grants for services for children, abused women and veterans in retaliation for its resolve to not cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
Holy Saturday, indeed.
