On Wednesday’s show: We discuss how leaders have responded to the mass shooting in Buffalo, N.Y. and other developments in our weekly political roundup.

Also this hour: What do Houstonians think about life here — the economy, their life experiences, beliefs, and attitudes? We discuss the findings of the 41st annual Houston Area Survey with Rice University sociologist Dr. Stephen Klineberg. It’s his last year working on the longest-running survey of its kind in the nation.
