Through­out De­cem­ber, law en­force­ment of­fi­cers in Travis County will hand out red fliers dur­ing traf­fic stops fea­tur­ing Austin teens Mayra Vega and Em­manuel Her­nan­dez, who were killed in a 2006 drunken driv­ing crash on their way home from a school event.

Austin po­lice say they will con­tinue en­force­ment of their “Home for the Hol­i­days” ini­tia­tive, which des­ig­nates ev­ery non­pa­trol of­fi­cer to par­tic­i­pate in at least one eight-hour pa­trol shift fo­cus­ing on traf­fic vi­o­la­tion en­force­ments.

Perry’s en­joy­ment of firearms is sin­cere. I have no prob­lem with lawabid­ing ci­ti­zens own­ing and us­ing firearms. Some peo­ple don’t un­der­stand other peo­ple’s fas­ci­na­tion with guns. I don’t un­der­stand other peo­ple’s fas­ci­na­tion with golf.

What’s next? Am I go­ing to find out the Longhorns are not the finest col­lege foot­ball team in the land?
