The Noise Machine (10/14/10)

The daily delay is slowly getting shorter.....


Give the John Faulk folks their due....they're out there working. They don't have a snowball's chance in Hell, but they're possibly laying the groundwork for others down the road in that District. (I say possibly because a lot of it depends on whether or not the future GOP snaps to the reality that to win minority votes means you have to pay attention to their communities more than during election time.)


More bad macro-economic news on the National front. Those warning sirens you are hearing are the Majority Loss Alarms clanging in Democratic election HQ's across the Country.


What makes this so funny is that Icken is telling the truth. That many who write and edit for ChronBlog are members of the "effete in the Heights" only makes it more so. (Then there's the debate about whether or not a relatively small Facebook group (when compared to total area population) would even be "news" or no if the members weren't predominantly upper class?)


That's one small step for preservation, one giant leap towards zoning. (Houston is the worst at failing to embrace its strengths while rushing to emulate the things that make other cities truly world class. What this leaves it with is a handful of World Classiness and a group of elites who really think others are impressed by it.)


If you're a 501(c)3 non-profit and haven't filled out your required returns, you better get on it.


Bill King comes out For Proposition 3 (The Red Light Camera Proposition) As is his custom, he takes an honest look at it and decides the revenue that is generated is worth the lost privacy. (Which, is a defensible position, whether you agree with it or not.)


What political desperation looks like. It ain't pretty, especially from a man who was griping just a few weeks ago about how negative Perry was running.


We're Texas?


If you love the outdoors (and are not an urban ecomental who loves the outdoors as a concept instead of as a reality) then you're going to be pleased to see this bit of news. Tent-camping in State Parks is one of my favorite past-times. Especially in the Hill Country.


And finally......


Evan from Perry vs. World looks at the case of Burka vs. Rasmussen and declares Rasmussen the runaway winner. If you've followed the writings of Kevin and Evan (and, to a lesser extent, me) on the sorry state of the State's political media this should not surprise you.
