Sooner or later we knew we were going to see a front page headline like the one in today’s Chron:  HISD PUTS TAX HIKE ON TABLECheck out the story.

175 years ago today the Siege of the Alamo began.

Houston CM James Rodriguez will have his Campaign Kick-Off Reception tomorrow evening, Thursday, February 24, from 5:30 to 7 pm at Hearsay Gastro Lounge, 218 Travis.  It is a cool place so check it out.

In 1974, San Luis retired the number 17 of course that was worn by the late and great MLB Hall of Famer Dizzy Dean.
