Lori C-Renteria

Primary night at the Crockett Center was, um, cozy -- about 10 feet of space for hundreds of supporters doing the traditional TV-time victory lap -- and there, bobbing among masses, was a giant bulldog head. Underneath it was Eastside activist Lori C-Renteria (clad beneath the collar in a star-spangled bathing suit, a la Miss America), dramatizing Eddie Rodriguez's commitment to "be a bulldog in the House" for District 51. It was a good dose of political theatre in a town that's quickly forgetting how it's done.
