The Noise Machine (10/16/09)

Friday's are fun-days and fun-days are.....

There are three schools of thought when it comes to endorsements made by the Chron's Caucasian Think-Tank, either you will vote exactly with them, all the way against them, or totally ignore their recommendations. Either way you've got material today. (Some would say the last idea is the best idea, a sentiment with which the Almanac does not disagree.)

Imagine that, a climate change specialist is mad at Gov. Rick Perry for not.....well...paying more attention (and by extension money) to climate change specialists. *Funny how that works*

Remember all of the hubbub about Texas Food Stamps? (After all, Falkenberg beat it to death with her hammer) Yeah....not so much. Nothing to see here, move along....(That said, Texas could do a better job, but it's not the massive political failing it was made out to be by partisans with an axe to grind)

If you're reading this blog you're probably ahead of the curve on technology. If that's the case, then you'll be happy to know how Houston's Mayoral candidates feel about it as well. Bradley Olson provides the details. (FWIW Peter Brown wants to create new Government departments and implement plans. Shocker!!)

They say that a successful business needs a good location. Texas Watchdog is moving into their new one today so if you need to contact them you might want to wait until Monday, and the after-moving hang-overs have worn off.

One thing you have to admire about the City of Houston, they've got this revenue collection thing down to a science. Craig Malisow fills in the blanks behind BARC's latest misadventure.

Outside of that, it's beautiful weather and a beautiful weekend is on tap. Go outside and enjoy it.
