And stirrings on the border. From My San Antonio site:
BROWNSVILLE — The Zapata County sheriff Thursday was questioning why a Mexican military helicopter was hovering over homes on the Texas side of the Rio Grande.
then further along in the story:
(Sigifredo) Gonzalez, the Zapata sheriff, said he couldn't confirm reports that the helicopter was scoping out the home of a drug criminal. He said the incursion about a mile over the border took place over a neighborhood populated by many U.S. Customs officers who work at area border crossings — and that they knew what they were seeing.

The Vicad has had some real local news of late, including an incomprehensible but intriguing tale of hospital hankypankery. Wouldn't you love to know the real and true story behind that story?
The Victoria Master Gardeners have their annual plant sale Saturday morning. It's an event worth the trip out to the airport.
