WTF? Says Houston Press On Chronicle’s Latest BARC Article

I absolutely love the point Hair Balls has made in his blog about today’s Houston Chronicle article titled “Can BARC Chief Pull Off A Miracle”. Here is his point:

“If you heard what sounded like a sonic boom this morning, it was the thunderclap of Hair Balls’s head exploding. And why would that be? Because one of the nation’s biggest newspapers — the daily for the fourth-largest city in the country — allowed a columnist to print the bizarre evangelical ramblings of a private consultant who was hired in secret to do the work that the director of Health and Human Services should have been doing over the last five years”.

Yes, that’s right. We are paying a “consultant” to do what our tax dollars were ALREADY paying our government to do. Again..please exercise your vote for Mayor and city council members this November!!
