South Texas Blood & Tissue Center is struggling
The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center is struggling to bring in donors as it tries to pull itself out of a blood shortage. The center had 1.78 days’ worth of blood, as of Monday morning, compared to its goal of a three-day supply. STBTC has been trying since Friday to get 500 donors per day in order to catch up on its shortage, which the center said is mostly due to a shortage of donors, though a higher need for blood has played a role. Because of COVID-19, large blood drives at high schools and other community settings have not been possible.

Alright, Alright, Alright! McConaughey says he would consider running for office in Texas
Celebrities running for office is a tale as old as time, but for the Austinite turned mascot and persona of the state, things may have just gotten a little more real for Matthew McConaughey. In a recent interview on Hugh Hewitt’s radio program, the actor did not rule out the possibility of running for office in the Lone Star State.
On Tuesday, Hewitt asked McConaughey plainly if he would run for any political office in Texas. “I don’t know. I mean, that wouldn’t be up to me. It would be up to the people more than it would me,” McConaughey said. I would say this. Look, politics seems to be a broken business to me right now. And when politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested.”
