    This blog is fantastic! I’m a student at Rice and I met an alumnus at the centennial this weekend, one of your friends, who suggested your blog when I mentioned my interest in local politics. I’m looking forward to using it as a resource for my research project on the HISD bond issue and in the future to keep up with the issues. Thank you for the wonderful work you’re doing.
