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:

  • Ken Paxton’s securities fraud case stemming from 2015 charges may be coming to Houston
  • Pearland ISD suffered a data breach last year, affecting the personal information of students dating back to 2014
  • Summers in Houston are getting hotter and more extreme

Our panel of non-experts this week includes:

  • Mustafa Tameez, media and public affairs consultant, and managing director of Outreach Strategists
  • Charles Kuffner, who writes the “Off the Kuff” political blog
