NEWScoop: Colons, Bombs, Warm Falls, Weak Inspectors, and Confederate Bans

A man in La Porte held up a bank with an undisclosed device. I hope it was a clock taped to a wad of old cigars. I wouldn’t hand over my money for anything less. Would you? Visit KHOU for more.

It’s thicker than pea soup out there. What the funk?! Somehow, we deceive ourselves into thinking that we’re going to get cool weather in November. Every year we complain about how it’s 85 degrees the week of Thanksgiving. I’ll learn eventually. But, probably not this year. Why’s it so warm? Visit KHOU for more.
The City vs. the County, Who is the Weakest Inspector?
Harris County has been sniffing around the City of Houston’s dirty laundry. That’s odd. They’ve managed to find that the City is violating itself. That’s odd, too. How?

The Civil War happened over 130 years ago, while, World War II ended just over 70 years after that.

That’s some lag. Visit TheChron for more.
