Weekend Update (09/18/10)

Sorting through the news so you don't have to.....

I can think of worse ways to spend a weekend, but not many.

The funniest part of this story concerning the Texas race for Ag Commissioner are the comments from Gilbert staffers pooh-poohing the charges using the same talking points. These things happen in non-competitive, low visibility elections.

Houston City Councilman Jarvis Johnson's run of bad luck continues. He's certainly in the lead for the "worst year" award among Houston public officials.

That ChronBlog even treats this story on undeserving Heisman winners as "new" says a lot about how they view their subscriber base.

(First, it's a stupid premise, one sportswriter looking back {and, taking pro careers into account}, and declaring Heisman Trophy winners undeserving? Give me a break. Then, he calls out Houston's lone winner and someone who had the single best statistical season of any quarterback during that era. As ChronBlog's subscriber base continues to dwindle one day forensic accountants will look back on stories such as this as "WTF" moments.)
