There is a ton of new stuff each day on the Houston Press blogs; you're only getting a taste of it here in the print edition. Head to (or "/rocks" or "/eating") and under "Tools" on the top-right side of the page, use the "categories" drop-down menu to find these stories:

Courts and Crime

The widow of a heroic Wharton firefighter was sued by his ex-wife and mom because, they said, she was born a man and the marriage was therefore invalid. A prominent new hire at the UT Medical School-Houston has a checkered past with sexual-discrimination claims. And if you litter in La Marque, you're not just getting a ticket, you're going to jail.
