Final Friday

The Chron E-Board is preparing us for a TEA takeover of HISD – sort of. The have another take today on HISD. They will have another one on Sunday and one on Monday.  Go check it out, please.

I think a lot of folks have accepted the takeover. Not much we can do about it.

Here is part of Kuffer’s take on the Harris County Constable Precinct 2 stuff:

See here for the “two Jerry Garcias” story, which I would have blogged about separately had it not been subsumed by this story. You can read the Chron article for details; I’m going to wait to see what happens at trial before making any firm conclusions, since I was not aware of any of this before now. On a broader level, is it maybe time to think about getting rid of the elected office of Constable all together? We have a pretty damn spotty record with Constables in Harris County, from Perry Wooten to Jack Abercia to Victor Trevino to Ron Hickman, and maybe allegedly now Chris Diaz. Someone make the case that elected Constables are still a good idea in the 21st century, as opposed to just absorbing the office into the Sheriff’s department. I’m going to need to hear it, because I’m not sure I see it. Campos has more.

Here is all of Kuffer: http://www.offthekuff.com/wp/?p=93562.


This is the last Friday of the year and the decade. Oh, well.

My niece Cristina is having a church wedding tomorrow. Cool. I am happy for her.

I hear Siete family members will be in town. Also, cool.

I think most stations are done with the Christmas tunes.

Have a nice final weekend of the decade!
