With the current state of the football, baseball and basketball programs at the Forty Acres, the time has come to ponder the once-unfathomable: Is there any reason to keep the University of Texas open?
I think I’ve found one. If you’re a fan of photography, get thee to the LBJ Presidential Library and see the Briscoe Center for American History’s “News to History” exhibit of 130 photos that will remind you of the unparalleled power of a still image. You’ll see photos from 13 presidential administrations, from FDR to Barack Obama. I guarantee you’ll linger at many of the photos as you take in the faces and the interaction and the moment.
