Statesman on Slusher

"Daryl Slusher is right." There couldn't be sweeter words to new city councilmember Daryl Slusher's ears -- but especially so if they come from his old nemesis, the Austin American-Statesman. The daily, long a pincushion for Slusher's journalistic jabs, seems now to have quite a fondness for Slusher in his new position, and is saying so right and left. They appreciate his "open government" initiatives in editorials, and can't resist running his picture next to positive stories about his tough tactics on the dais. Hmm... what's next for the dragon-slayer?

Austin American-Statesman
