This "Between The Lines" clip was filmed right when I first started taping these things, so I am not quite making love to the camera like I will be in the future. You would be surprised how hard it is to be engaging with a huge white light in your face and a camera pointed at you.
The topic is the ongoing question of "What was the worst decade ever?" which I helped cover for a year-end issue of the Houston Press back at the end of 2010. My deduction was that 2000 to 2010 was pretty bad, but it was also pretty damned weird.
Be sure to keep looking out for me and the usual cast of characters on Newsfix each night on CW 39 at 5 and 9 p.m. You can also follow NF on Facebook and Twitter. It will make my mom happy, at least.
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.
