Today, we ask panelists Lisa Falkenberg, Vlad Davidiuk and Fred Goodall to consider the goodness, badness, or ugliness of a Harris County grand jury’s decision this week not to indict Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, but rather to indict the two anti-abortion activists who prompted the investigation in the first place.

We also discuss Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner signing an executive order this week requiring a new focus on how the city deals with its budget. And Harris County Commissioner's Court this week tasked the County Engineer's Office with preparing a study into the feasibility and impact of building a parking lot under the Astrodome.
