The suspense has been so thick you could cut it with....Oh, Christ, what's the word we're looking for here...some kind of cutting implement...a really sharp-edged melon-baller? No, that's not it. Maybe box cutters.
At any rate, you can relieve that suspense right now by clicking on our current cover story and finding out who walked away with the prestigious 2009 Turkey of the Year award.
It was a tremendously competitive year, so the winner really had to outdo himself (or herself!) Was it Sheila Jackson Lee, giving the greatest eulogy since the Gettysburg Address? Allen Stanford, for reinforcing the tasteless-Texan stereotype?
Cecil Cooper, for just being Cecil Cooper?
The answer lies a mere click away.
(A knife!!!! That's what we were thinking of!!!)
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
