The Totescast's horn of plenty is positively overflowing this week, crammed with comments from Michael King on the impending verdict in the money laundering trial of Tom DeLay. No reheated leftovers here!

We also recap last week's council action regarding local historic district status for Hyde Park, and the lump-sum $300 million appropriation for Water Treatment Plant No. 4 construction. All this, plus a little breaking news as the city slims the finalists for Police Monitor to four candidates. As always, Jordan Smith and Wells Dunbar are patrolling the beat.
