  1. For those of you who don't subscribe to multiple newspapers, you may not know that The Houston Chronicle does something interesting. If someone at the Chronicle (or maybe Hearst?) deems a comic strip too controversial, the strip gets replaced by a rerun. I've noticed this twice since I've been here. This is the Dilbert that ran in the Chronicle on July 25, 2022: This is the correct Dilbert that ran in other newspapers to which I subscribe: If you look closely, you can see that the Dilbert that ran in the Chronicle on July 25, 2022 is dated July 26, 2016. On July 25, I sent an e-mail to the Chronicle asking for an explanation, but received no response. Disappointing, considering that I am a paying subscriber. I noticed it again today. Here is the Dilbert that ran in the Chronicle this morning (September 12, 2022): Notice that it's dated September 15, 2016. Here's the Dilbert that ran in other newspapers today: I get that it's a controversial topic, and some people might be uncomfortable with it. But as I stated in my letter to the Chronicle: "It would have been better for the Chronicle to either move the strip to the Editorial section, or to place a notice in its usual place explaining why today’s strip was not printed. Perhaps both were in order. I won’t use a mere comic strip to get on a soapbox about a newspaper’s journalistic integrity, and how a lack of transparency leads the public to believe the worst about an organization. But I do want to note that I am an adult, and can handle being exposed to viewpoints from all parts of the political spectrum. I suspect anyone who spends real money subscribing to a newspaper is of similar maturity." The Chronicle needs competition. Too bad the majority of people choose to not pay for their news. It's worth noting that this kind of content replacement isn't unprecedented in Houston. There's a bunch of television shows that KPRC-TV has refused to show over the years.
  2. By Mayra Beltran/Houston Chronicle The Yale Street bridge, south of I-10 Year built: 1931 Owned by: Municipality This bridge is eligible for historical designation, but is functionally obsolete, meaning it does not meet modern design standards. The bridge is scheduled for replacement in 2016, transportation writer Dug Begley reports at HoustonChronicle.com. 1 of 22
