What Texans would do for a Lincoln

Spaced City

We took a look at five long-gone examples of Mad Men architecture in Houston — they don't make 'em like that anymore. The Houston GLBT Center abandoned its Montrose home to jump on the Washington Avenue bandwagon, and Missouri City decided to ban daycare centers in strip malls.

Political Animals

With the proposed new license plates mentioned above, we decided to take Texas's apparent attempt to endorse rightwing extremists by offering a few license plates of our own. We also kept watch on the King Street "Patriots," a group of white conservatives who are aggressively serving as poll watchers in minority voting areas. In response to the group, the Harris County Clerk put out an announcement saying voters can't wear shirts featuring Obama or John McCain, leading us to wonder just who wears a John McCain T-shirt these days.

Art Attack

We wrapped up the first-ever Houston Fashion Week with lots of photos from Tranquility Park's runway shows. We ran down our list of the best (and most recent) political gaffes captured on YouTube. We interviewed actress (and Houston native) Loretta Devine about her role in Tyler Perry's controversial new film For Colored Girls. And we said goodbye to Penthouse founder Bob Guccione with a smattering of our favorite celebrity Penthouse covers.
