The Daily Texan has a front page news story today about the impending budget cuts and layoffs that will happen in August 2014. I will probably lose my job along with the majority of our small staff of fourteen. Though the museum will remain open to visitors, there will be no budget for public events, tours, teacher training, or exhibit improvement.
Here is more information on our public programs and where you can donate if you want to help.
I’ve worked here for over five years, and this has been the best job I’ve ever had thus far. I’m devastated that it’s going away by the end of the fiscal year. While I am mollified that this little museum—which has always been free and open to the public—will not close, it will be a shadow of its former self if there is no one around to care for it. Please help if you can.

exiledintejas:

Went for an afternoon bike ride today. Here’s a tally of the local central Texas fauna spotted on today’s ride (note - this is rather typical for parts of Texas):

9 deer
1 armadillo (dead)
1 turkey vulture (snacking on said armadillo)
1 harlequin Great Dane
The scariest looking opossum in central Texas (Hey, Halloween’s Thursday buddy!)

In a stunning move, a federal judge Monday ruled that abortion restrictions authorized by Texas lawmakers in July are unconstitutional, and will not be implemented as scheduled on Tuesday, according to court documents obtained by NBC News.
U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel decided Monday that the regulations requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital impeded on the rights of physicians to do what they judge is best for their patients and would unreasonably limit a woman’s access to state abortion clinics.
