Re: Hiatus

Hope it's not too serious, but it usually is if a hiatus is the result.  Take care of yourself, and hope to see you back soon.

Are you slipping away like Rush did a few weeks back?

Maybe Parker's sending him to Russia?

If you have never met Kevin's Mom she was a wonderful lady and will be missed.

Re: Hiatus

Michael Reed of the West University Examiner has written a very good investigative article about Metro's incestuous real estate agreements. Ah....recall ever reading anything of this ilk in the Chronicle?  Thought not!

Re: Hiatus

Yup...More on Reed's article (and the article that it's following up on) here: http://corycrow.blogspot.com/2010/07/me … state.html

Reed has done Yeoman's work on this story.

Re: Hiatus

Way to go Mike Reed the virtuoso of local investigative journalism in Houston!  All Houstonians need to remember that the Metro real-estate contract was not the only agreement signed by the former board.  The Parson's contract went to the wife of the head of engineering for Metro, and Levi Benton's retention has to be the most stinky.  Seriously, the former Judge who dismissed Daphne Scarbrough's suit is on the Metro payroll. I might also point out that Levi Benton was also a Mary Jane Smith client.

Re: Hiatus

Kevin, please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your mother.  I hope you, your father and the rest of your family will find some solace in the fact that your mother appears to have led a full and happy life.
