We talk with Mayor Parker about these and other developments of recent months, and welcome your questions for Mayor Parker about anything related to the city of Houston.
Also this hour: A lot can happen in a week – some of it good, some of it bad, some of it downright ugly. When faced with intriguing developments in the week’s news, we turn to our rotating Friday panel of “non-experts” to parse The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of it all. On today's panel: Houston Chronicle writer and Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! panelist Kyrie O'Connor, Texas Leftist blogger Wayne Ashley ...and Russ Capper, founder and host of The Business Makers Radio Show and The Energy Makers Show. They’ll contemplate The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Texas lawmakers contemplating moving the state’s Public Integrity Unit out of Austin, how a Grand Prairie man wound up in jail for failing to pay fines incurred for not taking care of his lawn, and what to make of a planned “venti”-sized Starbucks in downtown Houston.
