A restaurant manager has finally solved the mystery of finding the owner of a 96-year-old Bible that found in his restaurant.
Ruben Navarette of the Italian restaurant “Azzurro” had been looking for the owner of the old Bible for many months. “When he discovered the well-worn book inside a plastic bag in the restaurant bathroom in October 2018, Navarette thought the owner would return soon,” according to Liftable.

After finding the Bible Navarette said,”I wrote a date on it and stuck in the safe because I figured for a bible they’ll probably be back the next day,” according to WTVR. With no owner returning back to claim it, Navarette was determined to reunite the book with its owner. The only evidence he had was the name scribed “Eleanor Pauline Dillard” and the date “December 25,1923”. After searching and failing to find anyone with that name, Navarette continued his quest.
“With our reservation system we can search up names and I tried searching that name up. I knew there would be a slim chance I’d be able to find any information on it and unfortunately I couldn’t,” he said. With little to no information besides a name and a small picture of Jesus between pages 808 and 809, Navarette was sure that the owner was missing their book, “It definitely belongs to someone’s family and I’m sure it has a lot of sentimental value to them.”
After months of researching with no results, Navarette reached out to CBS 6 (his local news station) and after numerous tips were sent in, the owner was found. The owner has been reunited with this almost 100-year-old book!
Texas Governor Greg Abbott Pledges to Outlaw Big Tech Censorship
Texas has had enough.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is pledging to outlaw Big Tech’s left-wing censorship, announcing his support of a bill in the Texas State Senate that would open social media monopolies to lawsuits from users at a state level.
State Senator Bryan Hughes Senate Bill 12 would provide legal recourse for users of Big Tech platforms who are banned from the services to return, designating Big Tech monopolies such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook as common carriers.
“They are common carriers and they cannot discriminate against people … it’s a violation of the first amendment,” Hughes said. “This is going to protect Texas’ free speech and get them back online.”
I am joining @SenBryanHughes to announce a bill prohibiting social media companies from censoring viewpoints.
It's un-American, Un-Texan, & soon to be illegal.https://t.co/zSdirRa1pj

“These are the areas that used to be the courthouse square where people would come and talk,” said Abbott of the legislation. “Now, people are going to Facebook and Twitter to talk about their political ideas, and what Facebook and Twitter are doing — they are controlling the flow of information, and sometimes denying the flow of information.”
“Texas is taking a stand against big tech political censorship. We are not going to allow it in the Lone Star state.”
The law establishing legal recourse against online censorship may prove legally durable enough to avoid breaching Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. That law provides immunity for user-created content on internet platforms, and doesn’t give social media platforms a right to discriminate against active or potential users on the basis of political ideology.
The future for fighting Big Tech censorship lies at a state level. While some state Republican officials have proven reluctant to separate themselves from the lucrative business lobbies of Big Tech oligarchs, Hughes’ approach seems legally innovative enough to give free speech defenders a fighting shot at free expression online.
