The House of Representatives once again put single-interest lobbyists before the people. A public already in favor of federal laws limiting access to assault weapons and other non-sporting, non-self-defense firearms was shocked into outrage by the mass murder in Killeen, Texas, this week. Yet the very next day, the House killed a proposal to ban certain (but not all) such weapons and a ban on large-capacity ammo clips that make mass murder such as in Killeen possible.The National Rifle Association and other opponents of gun laws are not that powerful anymore, yet the House caved in to their pressure tactics.

KILLEEN, Texas -- Signs of new life abound in the central Texas countryside this time of year. Newborn lambs lie peacefully beside their mothers, calves take their first unsteady steps on the dark brown soil and bluebonnets congregate along highways.Approaching this military-dominated city on U.S. 190, there are other signs of renewal, sometimes in mundane things -- people are once again heading into Luby's Cafeteria to have lunch and meet friends. For many residents of Killeen and surrounding towns, Easter's message of new life, hope and renewal was more than the belief that Jesus rose from the dead.

Who says Congress is full of wimps? Who says our representatives are spineless political hacks who just go with the flow, whichever way the wind's blowing?Not even the nation's worst mass killing could convince Congress to do something about controlling military-style assault weapons or, at least, the high-capacity ammo clips like the ones George Hennard used to tear up Luby's Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas. Doesn't it fill you with pride to know that, by a margin of 247-177, this country is represented by men and women of conviction, unswayed by emotional plea and fleeting hysteria?

Miri Marshall, a weathercaster at KCEN-TV in central Texas, will join WBAL-TV Aug. 22, as part of the station's weather team, general manager Dan Joerres said Tuesday. Marshall fills a role that became vacant when meterologist John Collins retired as a full-time staffer at the end of May, after 24 years at the station. Collins still has a freelance relationship with WBAL-TV, according to Joerres. "Miri has a lot of personality, a lot of energy on-air," Joerres said Tuesday.
