Texas Standard for August 13, 2015
How many police shootings since the start of the year? Though data is hard to come by, there may be a crowdsourced solution. Also, you’ve heard of flash floods, but what about flash droughts? That’s the term more and more climatologists are using to describe the state of Texas right now. Is the heat and lack of water leading to a milk shortage? More on that later. Plus, there’s a case of anti-semitic graffiti in San Antonio: a rabbi in the stricken community on why the cleanup is more powerful than the paint splatter. All that and much more on today’s Texas Standard.
