The Missouri Senate has more than the two-thirds vote for the Republicans to override a veto by Gov. Jay Nixon.

Why another ordinance? (11/14/10)

Lord Jesus, I will praise your name in song and glorify you with thanksgiving. Amen.
Back-yard chickens on acid; (11/14/10)
The true "acid test" per the definition, "a rigorous and conclusive test to establish worth or value" would not ask if I WANTED to live next to someone who had chickens.

As a matter of fact I stopped by to see for myself the other day...
