On Monday’s Houston Matters: The fate of nearly 100 historic remains discovered in Fort Bend County may be decided today. We learn the latest from a hearing on the matter. And we learn about efforts to soften the noise from sonic booms off the Texas coast.

Also this hour: AAA Texas estimates more than four million Texans will travel 50 miles or more this Thanksgiving — and most will be traveling by car. With that in mind, we remind you of the rules of the road on Texas highways and thoroughfares with officers from HPD and DPS.

Then, David Litt grew up wanting to work in comedy. Instead, he ended up writing speeches for Pres. Obama at the age of 24. He talks with Joshua Zinn about that experience and his return to comedy.

And, from the Texans eking out their seventh-straight win to the Astros’ newest acquisition, Jeff Balke updates us on the latest in local sports.
