FUBAR in the News (AKA “desperate cries for help”)

A conversation with Texas Tribune Managing Editor Ross Ramsey before the Thanksgiving break resulted in him asked me to write an opinion piece for them, which appears in the Trib today. Jump over to read it, then jump back and let me know what you think.

Speaking of el Tribune de Tejas, Reeve Hamilton wrote a piece last week on the importance, or lack thereof, of candidate endorsements. I was included in the article, and everybody Reeve interviewed agreed that endorsements don’t mean squat. We all then returned to desperately trying to get more endorsements for our favorite candidates.

Meanwhile, on Sunday I appeared on “Inside Texas Politics” on WFAA-TV in Dallas. Here’s the tape of the show, which opens with a very good interview with Mayor Bill White. Fast forward down to the -6:35 mark for the beginning of the segment in which I appear.

    WELL, clearly, anon thinks this is serious. It’s POLITICS, fer cryin out loud. Which is to say it’s all deadly funny. But it always could be funnier…e.g., ‘looks like you were unable to pull off another great coughing fit.

    Hello Harold,

    Can you please provide me with your name, email address or contact information? I work for Boxer Property and we are planning a get together for Houston bloggers to provide a behind the scenes view of the whole story of PlazAmericas (formerly Sharpstown).

    I hope you can participate.

    Thank you,
    Silvana Campione
