I admit that Texas Southern University has many problems, but can you actually expect all the problems incurred over the years to be solved in a relatively short period of time? TSU was never created to be on par with UT or Texas A&M, but the university has produced outstanding individuals -- federal judges, state judges, attorneys, statesmen and humanitarians. TSU is the only place where many individuals have a chance for a decent life.
I met one young woman at TSU who had been a member of a notorious gang. She has completely changed her life and is now making plans on attending law school. Everything that comes out of TSU is not bad -- the university is also a place for wayward souls to grow, change and become good citizens.
In Alison Cook's story "Year of the Rat" in the December 26 Press, it was erroneously stated that a letter circulated on behalf of state representative candidate Dwayne Bohac claimed he was a "pioneering member" of St. Ambrose Catholic Church.The letter actually stated that Bohac's parents had been pioneer members of the church.
