Jim Schutze breaks a little news -- or at least rumor that is news-y -- about DA Susan Hawk at the beginning of the SAGA Pod this week. We discuss whether the district attorney's actions are raising any red flags. Then we talk education -- why the state of Texas is making it harder to teach poor kids, and why Joyce Foreman is doing the same. We wonder why the politics of urban education make for strange bedfellows -- Clinton Democrats and business leaders on one side, far left-wingers and far right-winger on the other. And we wonder why Houston is kicking our ass when it comes to urban planning. I also reveal how I, on a reporter's salary, am able to buy a townhouse in central Dallas. (Hint: my looks have something to do with it.) As always, please listen with your ears.
