Rice will sell the tower and rights so they can buy things for the university. I admit that its a shame to lose 91.7, but it is patently absurd to cry out against Rice as if we the people have been wronged somehow. Outrage is inappropriate here. We're talking about a private transaction between two entities; legally there is no reason this should not happen. We all listened to the station and loved it, but that doesn't mean that Rice is accountable to us. No station, even a sort-of "community" one like KTRU is ever guaranteed perpetuity. It makes sense really: Rice will continue to broadcast the same KTRU format online, without the hassle and expense of dealing with an actual radio tower. The Rice students still get to have their show, and the segment of the population that hasn't figured out internet radio will be in the dark. Clearly Rice ought to be commended for looking after what matters most: their students.

Any true conservative who values personal freedom, especially freedom from government intrusion and tyranny, should support the rights of gays to marry. I don't know how religious morality became synonymous with conservatism, but it's up to us libertarians to change that.

Just watched 180° South, and really enjoyed it. Makes me want to go adventuring.

Though I would deign to shop there, I am in favor of the planned Wal-Mart on Yale in Houston. Those opposed need a lesson in pulling their heads out of their heights asses. Also, I like that HEB wants to put in a park next to the planned store on W. Alabama and Dunlavy. But they need our help to pay for the underground garage.
