Desperate Cries for Help Your Faithful Correspondent in the News

Last weekend, Austinites were out celebrating the beautiful weather by running more miles than most people can drive. The word “marathon,” incidentally, is derived from the original Greek, and loosely translated it means “let’s block as many roads as possible, for little or no reason.”

Instead of taking part in any of that, I was part of KXAN’s Sunday morning roundtable discussion on politics, this week featuring commentary on the stimulus package and reaction to Speaker Straus’ House committee assignments.

The video is available here.

Note to KXAN: your table isn’t even close to being round. Cease this false advertising immediately, before the authorities are called.

    Your host was, shall we say, not terribly up to speed, nor did she expend much effort to hew a neutral line. Is the talent pool that shallow for local TV hosts in Austin who actually know politics?

    Cyrus, I have no complaints on either front. The surface-scratching is more a function of serious time constraints and the demands of the viewership than any shortcomings of the host.
