It's Friday! Time for your Burnt Orange Reporters to close some browser tabs and touch on the issues of the week.

First up this week, the DNC put together this video:

Our new video 'Law and Disorder: Republican Governors Unit' questions the Republicans' promises of "leadership" while being plagued by scandals - from Chris Christie's "Bridgegate" and Scott Walker's "John Doe I & II" to former Governor Bob McDonnell's indictment, Nathan Deal's ethics investigation and Rick Perry's case before a grand jury.

First up this week, a map that gives you an idea of just how big Texas really is.

Texas is, at its tallest point, about 800 miles across, and the area in red shows everything that's within an 800 mile radius of Texas. That means, for example, Corpus Christi is closer to Cuba than it is to Denver!

by: Burnt Orange Report

Wed Apr 09, 2014 at 02:30 PM CDT

On Tuesday, April 15, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and State Senator and Lt. Gubernatorial candidate Dan Patrick will be debating the issue of immigration for a statewide audience, and we'd like you to come watch with us.

Join your friends from BOR and the Travis County Democratic Party as we watch two Texas politicians debate this key issue that will shape the future of Texas.

Announcing Burnt Orange Report's 2014 Austin City Council Candidate Tracker


by: Burnt Orange Report

Thu Mar 27, 2014 at 10:00 AM CDT

The 2014 Austin City Council elections will be a watershed moment in the history of our municipal government. Austin will elect representatives from 10 geographic districts, as opposed to 6 at-large council members. Additionally, there will be an open-seat race for mayor.

The elections are also shifting from a Saturday in mid-May to the November general elections in even-numbered years. As a result, turnout will increase by a potential 300% city-wide. Read more about the anticipated effects of these changes here.

In the meantime, there has been no shortage of candidates tossing their hat into the ring. Burnt Orange Report has compiled all of the names mentioned in news articles, as well as candidates with social media pages announcing their campaigns.

From the Katy, Texas police blotter this week, a man tried to use his Legend of Zelda replica sword to defend himself during a domestic dispute with his girlfriend's ex-husband. In response, his foe threw a flower pot at him. Both men wound up in the hospital, and the Zelda enthusiast was unceremoniously dumped by his lady.
