Community court helps downtown's 'most frequent offender'

I'd have to agree with Austinite. I work at 2 of these places in a volunteer capacity, and know SEVERAL formerly homeless that have gotten jobs and gotten off the streets in the last few months, some of them in their 40's. They were disciplined, didn't make excuses and spent their time wisely. I see many college students/people in their 20's however, who feed into this, by giving them money and buying them food, almost daily. I've even heard some on the bus who bragged about people doing it for them. These bleeding hearts don't understand that they're increasing this problem tenfold.  (Feb 18, 2013 | post #2)

Women in Austin, Texas that wear the stylish nike tempo s...

I was born in the U.S., but have spent the last 19 years overseas in Eastern Europe. I came back here to attend college. As I'm sure you're aware, there are many stereotypes on Americans/American women, and quite a few of them are negative. One of them is that women here are fat and have little style or class. Now I'm in Austin. WHOA! I have seen in the last 6 months what seems to be a big trend with a lot of the brunette/blonde women (who make up the majority I've noticed that have this style)that wear what are called nike tempo shorts. WOW! I can NOT believe how great ladies here look, and those certainly do the trick! I do my best to be discreet about how shocked I am by women in these, I hope I'm succeeding. I've gotten a few smiles, and some that bite their lip smiling and look downward. I think they've noticed. They're not fat at all, but do have some, hmmm...extra weight, is that ok to say? Quite a few of these ladies are NOT jogging either, they just wear them out and about. Anyhow, ladies here have CERTAINLY got the trendy style, they can NOT be beat, and the stereotypes are FALSE! Too good ladies!  (Feb 18, 2013 | post #1)
