What’d We Miss: 7.3.11 Weekly Reader

Loopsters, we let you down a little bit last week. We were a bit disorganized and a bit lacking when it came to our content. That doesn’t mean there wasn’t enough to go around. We covered all our bases, but we didn’t have our usual second and third helping served. Anyway, here’s what you might have missed last week.

The Father of Texas Education: Mirabeau B. Lamar or Ezekiel W. Cullen?
by Clint
We found us a historian. His name is Clint and his first task was untangling the myths behind the inception of the Texas education system. Lamar has long been credited with being the father, but was Cullen really the man behind our learning plan?

Staff Notes and Photos: Tasty Bits by Stephan
Don’t overlook the veggies when you go to Dolce Vita to get your brick oven pizza kicks. Stephan’s photo sheds some light on it.

Houston PRIDE Parade: Pride and Joy by Tea Jones
Oh, so right. The organizers of the annual PRIDE Parade in Houston know how to throw a party. Tea Jones give his thoughts on the event and tells you about how much fun it is. Unfortunately, you have to wait until next year to get in on the action.

Street Art of the Week: Fuzzy
A new contributor to our Houston street art Flickr group is the owner of this shot. Jews gives his name a bit of fur this time around.

Verticality: Class 1 – Drop in and Pole Dance by Stacy
Strippers aren’t the ones having all the fun (or workout) anymore. There’s a new studio in town bringing Houston the hot craze of pole fitness. It’s called Verticality and Stacy is deep into their workout plan. She’ll be bringing you her escapades spinning on the chrome pole.

Where’s Pauldo (ep. 70)
UNSOLVED! Pauldo is still missing. Help find him.

Photo of the Week: Standing Guard
From photine, we have this nighttime shot of the TOLERANCE statutes that stand over Buffalo Bayou. We’ve heard mixed feelings about these hollow guardians. What do you think about them?

Save the Date: Plastic by X
This article isn’t cutting edge, but it sure lines out what we already knew about relationships between boys and girls. Get yourself reaffirmed.
