Welcome to the silly season.....
David Jennings of BigJolly Politics has been after Terry Lowry and his Link Letter endorsement mailer for quite some time. Today he's got his first break. It will be interesting to see where this goes moving forward.
More trouble for the State lottery. As if they need it.
More change at HISD from Terry Grier. It's been interesting watching him remake a district that desperately needs it. (Whether it all works or not?)
Who says the Republicans don't do it on the Facebook? It's the social conservatives vs. the fiscal conservatives in a cage match. (I'd pay to watch Lowry vs. Emmett, my money's on the County Judge however.)
County Court vs. County Sheriff. Showdown at high-noon. (In the modern day duels are fought with budget wonks.)
Busy week for Bill White so far. He says he's for real, tells the gambling lobby no way and tells those who want to see his personal financial statements to go pound sand. (In opposition to his opponent, who's made it a habit to release those to the public)

"The Medical Center would collapse without Light Rail", "Other cities are going to come and look at how we did this contract", "I think Metro is extremely transparent" and other joys abound in Charles Kuffner's interview with David Wolff. One thing clear from this is that Metro is bringing about its full arsenal of PR flacks against Pauline Higgins. (Well, that and David Wolff has no concept of scale when performing a cost/benefit analysis.)
