There are a lot of labels in the world of politics. There are Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives and even libertarians. But socialists is another thing altogether. Socialists are pretty close to communists, as some see it. 

For years, the socialist label has been something of a taboo, not just in Texas but in many parts of the country. Today though, many younger voters are leaning hard left, and they’re looking to old-school socialists for leadership and inspiration.

From Texas Standard:

Making a list of the best and worst lawmakers after each Texas legislative session isn't quite as old as the Legislature itself, but it's still a time-honored tradition. Texas Monthly has put out such a list since 1973, and each one is an occasion awaited with bated breath by political observers, legislative aides and of course, the lawmakers themselves.

The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center focuses on one particular kind of dance this weekend. It's a dance whose origins are long ago and far away. Here's the Guadalupe's Belinda Menchaca.

"It actually comes from the southern region of Spain--Andalusia, and is influenced   by Arabic music and comes from the gypsies, and of course, it has evolved, and I think that is why it is so vibrant today."

She's talking of course about Flamenco.
