Lots of stuff going on

Light blogging from me today, but plenty of other good folks have stuff you should read:
  • Adina lets us know about a Texas bill up today protecting truckers from adult websites. That's good, right? I mean, you wouldn't want to corrupt the truckers.
  • More from Adina over at Save Muni Wireless on why public wireless doesn't crowd out private companies (any more than NYC subways crowd out taxi service), and how the US is falling behind in high-speed Internet access.
  • Greg Moses offers some first-rate investigative blogging regarding Texas' voter registration database upgrade and Texas' efforts to comply with the Help America Vote Act. His series is ongoing.
  • Texas Tommy takes an indepth look at a faith-based prisoner reintegration program.
  • I second the sentiment from Rhetoric and Rhythm about trusting jurors in the Life Without Parole debate.
And don't forget to check out Grits' blogging over the weekend. Here's what I've been writing about:
Finally, legislation banning so-called "consent searches" at traffic stops will be heard today in the House Law Enforcement Committee. I wrote about the hearing on the Senate version of the bill last week. HB 2418 is joint authored by Rep. Dutton, D-Houston, and Rep. Hupp, R-Lampassas.
