TIE: Kinky Friedman for Governor; Tamara Hoover v. AISD

Talk about your Austin stories! Always controversial, always on the scene, Kinky Friedman has turned politics and the media on its ear with his run for governor. Call it a travesty, or call it the Second Coming, Kinky will keep 'em talking long after the election, whether he wins or not. And speaking of controversy, Tamara Hoover kicked up a heap of Texas dust when she requested a hearing when her former employer, AISD, tried to get her to go away silently and/or threatened to pursue the revocation of her teaching certificate after online nude pictures of the Austin High teacher were revealed to the administration by a fellow teacher. Both local stories had the mainstream press and the Internets goin' nuts.
