Best campus plan or clever land deal?
In an editorial last week, this newspaper asked an important question: Why is the city buying property and displacing nearly 100 homes and businesses for a Texas A&M University campus on the South Side when property nearby is available without cost?

I'm on it:
On Friday 6/24 state rep Mike Villareal told me he has ALREADY asked the Texas Legislative Council to come up with proposed language for a new state law that would LIMIT taking people's private property in order to give it to other private owners, developers and such.
State rep Frank Corte Jr told me he had already contacted the governor in an effort to get this issue on the agenda for the current Special Session, which is just astonishingly fast action. I told him that if the governor does allow the issue to be considered during this session, I will never again call him Gov. Blow-dry.

Poll shows Bush's Iraq optimism premature
A majority of Americans reject claims by the Bush Administration that the insurgency in Iraq is weakening and are divided on whether victory over the insurgents will have a major impact on terrorism elsewhere in the world

Followup report on "Lodi terrorists"
on my program today (6/27) 1:08p

Johnny Griffin III Guest: Attorney Johnny Griffin III

Friday in Sacramento, a Lodi father and son appeared in federal court, where prosecutors agreed to turn over evidence against them.

Umer and Hamid Hayat, 47 and 22 respectively, were arrested earlier this month and accused of being involved with terrorism. Neither man is charged with any terror-related crimes; a grand jury indicted them on charges of lying to federal agents.

Federal prosecutors agreed to turn over some of their evidence, but U.S. Magistrate Judge Peter Nowinski rejected a request to make prosecutors reveal what led them to suspect Hamid Hayat and put him on the government's "no fly" list.

Nowinski said he wasn't going to let defense lawyer Johnny L. Griffin III "muck around in national security information."

"It's a serious false statement case," Nowinski said. "It's a case where someone lied about terrorist activities."

The FBI has said it was investigating possible Lodi links to terrorism for several years. The case sped up when Hamid Hayat boarded a plane and began heading back to the U.S. after spending two years in Pakistan.

SBC plan to provide TV thru wires is floundering
SBC, based in San Antonio, has been unable to win battles in state legislatures that would speed up the process for gaining local approval to sell its television service. Reaching agreements with the program providers in Hollywood has been slow, too.
