  • I'm all for the power of positive thinking. Of course, journalists are trained to look for boogers. Thanks for the link on how readers can contact their legislators.

  • Chris,
    Think positive and stop looking for boogers.

  • All Fired,

    I'm basing it on the hope of Rep. Morrison that she'd still be on the higher education committee, even if she weren't appointed chairwoman. State Rep. Todd Hunter of Calhoun County would have been another favorable appointment for the issue.

    Certainly, this doesn't mean the legislation won't go forward. Our reporter is asking others this question for Friday's story. If you have any thoughts on the coverage, let us know. Thanks.

  • I believe you are jumping to conclusions not yet established.  Where did you surmise the new Speaker of the House's committee appointments don't look favorable to the expansion of the University of Houston-Victoria?  I see nothing to that conclusion in the story posted yesterday RUBI REYES.
