    I do not agree with many of these conclusions.  

    1)  The problem is the statute... it is not a gender issue.  The jury has to consider the evidence on existing statutes.  The theft at night statute has caused grief for years.  If he gave her the money willingly, I do not consider this 'theft'.  

    2)  San Antonio is a progressive island in the Texas compared to several other areas.  Julian Castro, Mayor, has passed several projects over the objectives of the no-tax bunch.

    3)  Over half of the population of San Antonio is Latino and the numbers and possibilities of Texas growing purple/blue are increasing rapidly.

    4)  I don't understand why the distance from Mexico was brought up but it is about 3 hours or less, not 5.  I suppose the racial differences was the reason, but that is just your conjecture.  Also on that issue, there have been many cases of justifiable homicide of Latino on White awarded in favor of the Latino ...so I do not agree with that assumption either.  

    5)  The best Mexican food is in Las Cruces, NM.  

    Thanks for listening...and come down to the Riverwalk some time, especially during the April fiesta.  You will love the city.
