Did you know that there’s a bunch od hearings about the Trans Texas Corridor going on around the state? No? Well, it’s not getting that much play in the big city papers, mostly because all the action with the TTC, at least in the near term, is going on in the rural parts of the state.

It’s too early to say, but you can be sure that Todd Staples will not be in attendance at any of these things. So who knows?
