"... In related news, Travis Co. commissioners agreed Tuesday to join Texas Cities for Clean Air a coalition formed by Dallas Mayor Laura Miller to model the impact of fast-tracked coal-fired power plants but Commissioner Gerald Daugherty wanted to make it clear he had not landed on a conclusion as to whether the plants will be good or bad for Austin's air quality..."

"...GREATER TUNA was supposed to be set to rest by its co-authors and original stars Jaston Williams and Joe Sears last year, but we suspected those boys couldn't really send the original show about Texas' third smallest town on the long hayride.
