- Musings has posted pictures of the first mail pieces from Peter Brown to hit homes in the Houston Mayor's race (November 3rd election date with an expected December Runoff).
- Peter Brown seems to have a little supporter list problem, claiming endorsements from people that are supporting or even working for other campaigns. That wouldn't be that big of a deal if Peter Brown himself hadn't endorsed 2008 TexBlog PAC supported candidate Sherrie Matula, then showed up at a Republican fundraiser featuring Karl Rove which benefited Matula's Republican opponent. Musing has more.
- Houston Mayoral candidate Gene Locke seems to have a bit of a problem with the “ladies”. Enough of a pattern of statements and activity, including this ridiculous event invitation, that Annie's List released a statement. Hat tips to all the Houston bloggers who are so much better tuned into the Mayor's race in Houston.
- U.S. Senate candidate Bill White has posted video of his fundraiser in Austin during the DNC to YouTube. Check it out here and also go here to see his speech to the Netroots N' Boots Party that Burnt Orange Report and TexBlog PAC co-sponsored last Thursday.
- Why is Travis County Court at Law #3 candidate Olga Seelig wishing people today “La Shana Tohvah – Happy Rosh Hashana – a peaceful New Year to our friends of Jewish heritage.” Doesn't it not start until tomorrow at sundown? Of course, on Saturday, maybe we'll be treated with greetings for International Talk Like a Pirate Day!
- The portion of I-35 in Austin that runs through downtown, as well as the parking and sidewalks below it, is set to get an upgrade with some artistic design.

- Back home in Fredericksburg, excitement is building with the news that construction of the 26 foot tall, five level Christmas Pyramid is on schedule over in Germany. The centerpiece marks the rebirth of Christmas festivities in Fredericksburg, with the St. Nikolaus Fest the first weekend of December, though the Pyramid will be on the Market Square throughout the month of December. It will be the tallest of it's kind in North America.
- Over in Lubbock, recycling!
