Aransas Pass Fire Department

Welcome to the Aransas Pass Fire Department. Usually when one thinks of fire department a large city comes to mind. Not everyone has the resources of places like New York, Los Angeles, or Houston. However smaller places like the AP ( as the locals call it) have one thing that her bigger sisters don't have, community.

The Bay

These chairs look very comfortable to rest in between calls.

The Dive Bar Restroom

Ah freedom of speech! Many consider the unfettered ability to say whatever you want whenever you want not only sacred but the truest form of expression. However some forms of expression are not always artistic but rather moronic. This post take you to a dive bar restroom ( the men's room anyhow). Scroll the walls and you can find just about every opinion imaginable littered with misspellings, grammar errors, and drunken logic. One scrawling reads "revolution!" How many grass roots movements were inspired by writing on a restroom wall? Other scrawlings inform us of how bad ass certain local bands are who can't afford a press kit at the moment. Drunken liberals scrawl their pro Obama messages to be countered by drunken conservatives. Another scrawled the 'N' word in drunken anonymity because they aren't brave enough to utter it in public. While the dive bar restroom wall maybe the purest form of free expression, some people should just shut the hell up.
