Dems poised to pass property tax relief bill
In 1935, Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger devised a thought experiment. He proposed that if you sealed a cat in a box with a flask of poison that may eventually kill it that you can't definitively know the cat's fate until the box is unsealed.

Brad Buckley, R-Salado.
