1. The DISD trustees did not extend the contract of Superintendent Hinojosa yesterday. His contract runs through 2012, same as mine. He recently took a 5 percent pay cut, same as I did. He makes more than $300k a year — not sure where I’m going with this.
2. Former Mayor Ron Kirk is being vetted by the Barack Obama transition team for a possible Cabinet-level position. I think this is a shrewd move. Kirk was a great mayor and would be a great choice to lead HUD or the Department of Transportation. And, yes, I’m openly campaigning for a job as his press secretary.
3. Rick Perry vs. KBH: GOP catfight!
