    Wiki, Wiki, Wiki

    Eighteen years ago, I was the managing editor of The Daily Texan, and Mike Godwin was the editor of the University of Texas student daily. We did not get along well -- something having to do with me trying to lead a mutiny, and, oh, wasn't college fu...

    Recalling the Recall

    The dough arrived a few weeks after RC2 sent a gratis, sorry-'bout-that Diesel train. But the company does promise to send replacement toys "in the next few weeks," along with "the free item we promised." At this point, I think he'd prefer a Han Solo...

    Spoiling for a Fight

    Last month I talked to Peter Schulte about his nascent campaign to unseat incumbent Sheriff Lupe Valdez in next year's Democratic primary. He seemed smart and nice, but a little too timid for the game, as though he didn't quite realize that you can't...

    But Who's the Mayor of Airport City?

    Resolutions - Be better person. Cause major flood in Park Cities.

    One of my New Year's resolutions is to be a better person. Another is to do a better job cleaning up after the dogs in my backyard. Whichever comes first. The dog thing I can do. The better person plan is in conflict, I must admit, with some of w...
