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 a rotating panel of non-experts to parse The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly of it all.

This week, our panel weighs in on these stories:

  • Hundreds of Houston schools got a reprieve from the TEA on academic performance due to Harvey, but not four HISD schools that were already facing possible state intervention
  • A passenger deemed impatient causes delays and aggravation for everyone at Bush Intercontinental Airport

Our panel of non-experts this week includes:

  • Wayne Ashley, academic adviser, digital media strategist, and editor of TexasLeftist.com
  • Vlad Davidiuk, communications director for the Harris County Republican Party
  • Vivian Ho, health economist at Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine
