UH’s Dr. Murray who knows more about politics than Commentary and everyone else combined put out his takes on the SHOW ME THE TV mantra.  Check it out.  Of course, what do I know but at least folks are talking about it.

If she’s comfortable then that is A-OK with me.

The Chron hinted yesterday that H-Town Mayoral candidate Peter Brown had taken a few days off so he could spend a few days at his pad on the Mediterranean Sea. I don’t have a problem with that. So he misses a couple or three forums.
