Eugene Volokh writes about the polygamists
A Texas appeals court ruled that the actions of the Texas Child Protective Services were unjustified today. Eugene Volokh writes about the situation at his blog. When my wife heard about the court ruling, she was appalled by it.
I spent 11 years on active duty in the navy. Half was as an enlisted man and half as an officer. My Dad had interested me in the navy and ships, when I was young. I found that I was attracted to doing research, regardless of topic, although much of that research has been in the fields of naval and military history. My Dad was also an artist, and got me drawing and painting since I was three. Much of my work consists of portraits of military and naval historical figures, as well as ships and tanks.
