Amazingly, I actually got off my ass and out of the house

this evening and caught these folks performing; a good show, it was. There'll be more in the future.

Oh, and Harp from a can sucks; Harp on tap is pretty good.

Remember that stuff a few months back about Texas putting together some gunboats for those lakes along the border? They're going to the Rio and Gulf, too.
Texas unveiled the second of six new ‘interceptor’ gunboats on Thursday, similar to Navy swift boats that plied the rivers of Vietnam during the Vietnam War, to patrol the waterways of the Mexico border.

The Texas Department of Public Safety, which oversees the Texas Highway Patrol and the Texas Rangers, said the 34-foot shallow water crafts would be deployed on the Rio Grande and the Intercoastal Waterway, which separates the Texas mainland from Padre Island.
I'd say folks in TX are getting pretty tired of waiting for the feds to do something about the problems.

Seems to me that patrolling the Rio and the Waterway should be the Coast Guard's job.

Which is feds; three guesses on how soon they'll do it
