Texas Judge gives 7 year old right to decide custody.
Dallas , TX
A seven year old boy was at the center of a county courtroom drama
yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have
custody of him. The boy had a history of being beaten by his
parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in
keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family
unity be maintained to the highest degree possible.
The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat
him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her.
When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents,
the boy cried and said that they also beat him. After considering
the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic
violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the
unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have
custody of him.
After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the
child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the
Dallas Cowboys, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
Wow you had me going on that one,that there is funny

Agreed, the judge made the correct decision in this case.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

LOL, good one. Change the team to the Browns and I'll like it even better.

OF course I believe the Cowboys have the highest ratio of felon to non-felon players in the league...
