Marvin Dies

Houston Chronicle reports:

The loudest man on Houston television

Channel 13's Marvin Zindler dies at 85.

I am sorry to see him go. He fought for the little guy and against hypocrisy even if he was a showboat.

His anti-chicken ranch crusade, inspiration for "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas", became a national legend. In that case he took advantage of official hypocrisy and that was the least decent of his crusades but made him into an immense media figure.

Eyewitness News reports of his life and death.

Not dead but retiring is Cragg Hines, who became worthwhile reading again after an early infatuation with Bush and the Iraq invasion and occupation.
