Olivia Solis Gets Her Breathing Tube Taken Out of Her Mouth. A bit of good news for the infant daughter of DISD trustee Miguel Solis and his wife, Jacqueline. Little Olivia been in the hospital since birth dealing with an undiagnosed heart defect. Look at this face.

Ethan Couch to Be Released From Jail. I don’t feel like this is the last we’ve heard of the “affluenza” kid, gut reaction, but I hope so. The president of MADD calls his release a “grave injustice.”
