The Noise Machine (01/29/10)

Much ado about......



Let us start with today's odd defense of climate science by ChronBlog faith-based writer Eric Berger. (They admit they don't know exactly what they are talking about but they all agree it's going to happen.)


UH is working to meet Gov. Rick Perry's 5% budget reduction mandate. (It's important to remember that this is done in the private sector all the time. As such, it's not the impossible task the hand-wringers are making it out to be.)


If you're suffering from insomnia, there are some cures, in the form of Gubernatorial primary debates coming up soon. (I watched the first one, so I've done my Republican time. I will probably watch the Democratic debate however, for no other reason than morbid curiosity.)


NASA gets their marching orders, and they don't include the moon.


Why do I get the feeling that, if groups like Texas Parent PAC were to get their way, Texas would get an "F" in this survey and that would be a desirable outcome? (Education "reform" isn't about better teaching, it's about those currently ruining the system getting theirs.)


The sins of the father..... (Is this a system of justice? Or revenge?) Tom Kirkendall has more.


Coming Sunday Only in the print edition (Until Monday that is):The Return of Chron-Eye for the Death Row Killer Guy! Now with 12% more hype! (Oh, and a new "good life" section) (Which fits ChronBlog, who typically suffers from 12% lower subscription rates.) *sigh*


Speaking of declining subscription rates. L'il Red is back. Thankfully, and true to form, her comeback post was all about the "I". (In this crazy world we need some constants, even bad ones)


Do newspapers even employ copy editors now?


Texas Tribune Eye for the Death Row Killer Guy Part II. (One more in a continuing series of reports by Texas journalists trying to find that mythical 'innocent man' executed by the state.)


Sure, you can pay us for the education, but right now the field can't handle the workforce. (Someday however, in the future one guesses)


And finally......


Many people who gripe about the low-tech in Texas voting systems are the same folks who rail against the e-slate voting machines.
