Monday’s Show: Ranking The Presidents, And Publishing Mug Shots (Feb. 17, 2020)

On Monday’s Houston Matters: A survey ranks all the U.S. Presidents, the effects of publishing mugshots, local cardiologists discuss heart health, and an update on sports.

On Monday’s Houston Matters: It’s Presidents’ Day, and so we learn about an annual survey where historians rank all the U.S. Presidents. The survey is run by a local political scientist and some colleagues.

Also this hour: The Houston Chronicle announced last month it would stop publishing mugshot galleries. We discuss how publishing such photos can affect people’s lives — and even caused one man to change his name.

Then, a pair of local cardiologists discuss heart health.

And, from the Astros apologizing to the latest on the Rockets, Jeff Balke updates us on Houston sports.
