Atlanta FOX station is playing a documentary on the Texas Blackouts.

Covering the flooding, burst pipes, people getting wet in their homes while freezing, empty stores, food trucks unable to get there, billions lost, stress on 911 for days.

I wonder if State Farm and other insurers can do something about ERCOT since Gov. Abbutt and the Republican legislature isn't interested.

Do other states ask their female student-athletes about their menstrual history

Do other states ask their female student-athletes about their menstrual history?
Texas school districts also ask female-athletes very similar questions about their menstrual history. In several school districts—including in Austin, Dallas, Houston and Fort Worth—the questions are mandatory to complete, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Many other states require student athletes to undergo a physical examination from a healthcare provider, but they generally only ask the provider to share a signature affirming that the athlete is in good health, rather than turn personal health history over to the school.

Of course Abbutt and Dan Patrick want to know about high school girls cycles.
