In News Today . . .

In an effort to increase conservative legislation in Texas, state Rep. Arlene Wohlgemuth, R-Burleson, has pre-filed a bill that would require Texas doctors to request permission from the legal guardians or minors requesting an abortion.

In Opinion Today . . .

Wesley was beaten to death because he was gay.

I don't know why this surprises me so much. I've seen the news clips so many times that I don't even read them anymore -- the stories of Matthew Shepard and the many, many before him.

In Entertainment Today . . .

Traditional dating in college is fraught with many obstacles: budget (Why can't the outside world take a Cougar 1Card? Just put a Visa symbol on it and I'll be living the high life!), locale (a movie is almost a four-hour ordeal -- one hour to get to your car in outlying parking, drive all the way out to the theater, and another hour to get back and find a parking spot in the same zip code) and energy (my schedule has me booked from 7 in the morning to 8 at night).

In Sports Today . . .

The University of Houston men's and women's track and field programs competed in the UH Indoor Track Meet. The event was held at the Bill Yeoman Fieldhouse in the UH Athletics/Alumni center.
