Steve Murdock is the former state demographer of Texas. He, along with fellow staffers at the Hobby Center for the Study of Texas at Rice University, have collaborated on a new book entitled Changing Texas – Implications of Addressing or Ignoring the Texas Challenge.

On this edition of Houston Matters, we’ll welcome your questions for Murdock about the implications of ongoing changes in population growth, education, socioeconomics, health care, and transportation on our collective future here in Texas.

And, once again, Houston Matters goes to the dogs…and cats. Today, we focus on a couple of things like dental hygiene, obesity, exercise and a recent spate of salmonella in cat food which is making some pet owners question the safety of the food they give their pets. We’re joined by Dr. Lori Teller from the Meyerland Animal Clinic, and welcome anything else you’d like to know about your beloved dog or cat.

Also this hour, the Super Bowl and Lance Berkman of the Texas Rangers announced he’s retiring after a 15-year career.
