Jeff Leach grabs and goes, Glenn Hegar wonders about roses with other names, and the NRA has auspicious timing. Coincidence is on the News Ticker.
• Speaking of violence, a new poll says that 44% of Republicans believe an "armed revolution" may be just the thing to protect gun rights. Finally we know why Rep. Steve Stockman has been arming all those babies.
• Texas has a new official state sea turtle! Congratulations to Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell.
• Those looking to commemorate today's National Day of Prayer can change their money into a $12.99 iPhone case, an $8.99 water botttle, or a $200 banner. The latter is easily retractable in case Jesus decides to cleanse the temple.
• Austinites looking to break into reality TV will have their chance with Genealogy Roadshow. Just don't throw any drinks on people. That's generally frowned upon at PBS.
