The Totescast hails our cover story on the local taxi industry's low wages and lax regulation – and what's underway to combat that.

Then, to the surprise of absolutely no one, the Keypoint fallout continues – this time, ensnaring Austin Police Department Cmdr. Charles Johnson. Next up, an overview of the historic landmark zoning debate returning to City Council today, while last and certainly least, Judge Sharon Keller calls the whaaaaambulance. Jordan Smith and Wells Dunbar bring the cheese to go with her whine.
