A lot can happen in a week. Some of it good. Some of it bad. Some of it downright ugly. When faced with oddities in the week's Houston news, we turn to our panel of Houstonian non-experts to sort out the good, the bad, and the ugly of it all.

On today's panel: Aurora Losada, editor of the Houston Chronicle's Spanish-Language bi-weekly La Voz de Houston; Ernie Manouse, host of numerous programs on Houston PBS; and Russ Capper, Founder of the Business Maker Show and the Energy Maker Show.

We discuss: Another accolade for Houston – CreditDonkey-dot-com says Houston is one of the top ten U-S cities for people in their twenties; Last week, Houston-based Men's Wearhouse rejected an unsolicited $2.3 billion takeover bid by rival Joseph A. Bank; Business Insider has released a list of what it calls the most famous books set in each U-S state. For Texas, they selected Cormac McCarthy's No Country for Old Men over other famous Texas-based novels, like Giant, Lonesome Dove, Friday Night Lights, and Terms of Endearment; and more.
