Things happen while I replaced my mouse.
Pasadena, Texas: As I expected, a Pasadena mayor runoff between Isbell and Riggs. Jan. 19 will be the day of the runoff, unless you are smart and vote early. I support Riggs but there are some good things about Isbell's past record as mayor.
Halliburton, Iraq - When you have to call Ted Poe for humanitarian assistance things are really bad. A Houston, Texas woman says she was gang-raped by Halliburton/KBR co-workers in Iraq. She accuses the company and the U.S. government of covering up the incident. She was also kidnapped by supervisors and held 24 hours without food or water after being told not to seek medical help. She was only released when she managed to get a cell phone call out to her father who called his congressman Ted Poe.
Poe says his office contacted the State Department, which quickly dispatched agents from the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad to Jones' camp, where they rescued her from the container.Sunday on Meet The Press Tim took a full hour to attempt to cover some of Rudy's scandals. The ex-mayor's response - evasions and an attack of the giggles.
