Keep Houston Press Free

Yeah, What He Said

Looks like former Houstoned editor Steven Devadanam is doing good things in this world.

He and his wife Amy have adopted a pup most likely used as a bait dog in a pit bill fighting operation, according to the Chron.

We’re all about seeing our pals written up anywhere and everywhere, but we have to wonder if the Chron did a little selective editing of Devadanam’s words.

After all, Devadanam is a Houstoner to the end, so we present what we assume were his original quotes (with the parts deleted by the Chron in bold):

"We were moved and inspired, much like the Mexican Minutemen, whom I covered for Houstoned, the blog at houstonpress.com. We both knew right away we had to meet him, just like I knew I had to meet Robin Arcuri when I was writing for Houstoned and I found out she was half-naked downtown," said Steven Devadanam, a writer. "We fell in love with him instantly. He kissed the makeup off my wife's face, whom I haven’t seen happier since I wrote about Tony Soprano’s curtain call for Houstoned."

There, that’s much better. – Keith Plocek

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.
