YOU MAY JUST GET A WARRANT IN THE MAIL!

MUNICIPAL COURT IS HAVING PROBLEMS AGAIN!

As The Insite first reported on FOX 26 last week 45,000 people are starting to receive notices that a warrant will be issued for them for not taking care of their citations at Houston’s municipal court. But as FOX reported and The Insite learned possibly thousands of people got notices of warrants over the weekend for allegedly missing court dates that have not yet happened. The city says its human error but court insiders say it’s the problem plagued computer system that the city paid millions for after council approval. This is just the latest in a long line of problems with municipal courts new system that was suppose to cut down on the paperwork and streamline the system. So if you get a notice for a possible warrant on a court date that has not yet occurred then call the city’s 311 line to try and clear it up before the cops take you in…

THE BILLBOARD HAS ARRIVED IN HOUSTON!

THEY WANT TO STOP THE INVASION…

The very controversial billboard that’s been raising eyebrows around the country is now on the streets of Houston. The boards are placed up by an anti-illegal immigration group Grassfire.org. They want better policing on the borders and stronger legislation that would address illegal immigration. How do you feel about these billboards? Are they appropriate or too offensive for Houston. The Insite would love to hear your opinion on this issue…

LETS READ WHAT HE HAS TO SAY!

The Insite has talked city council member/talk show host/lawyer/real estate broker Michael Berry into doing a commentary every now and then on The Insite. Because the city leader is so busy we could not ask him to do something daily or weekly. So stay tuned to read some of the council members views right here on The Insite…Also, sorry about the lack of posts today…The Insite was off from work ill. I’ll be back to full speed with posting on Tuesday and don’t forget your ideas are more than welcomed here on The Insite!

MICHAEL GILDON’S QUESTION OF THE DAY!

HE’S ON INTERRACIAL DATING NOW!

On yesterday I was reading the Sunday paper and I saw a young interracial couple announcing their engagement. After reading about the couple, he had a nice job, average looks, educated and also a member of K-A-Y fraternity. She on the other hand was totally the opposite…Heavy set, none educated, unappealing and did I mention fat..Normally, it would have been overlooked until later on when I was watching a show called “Intervention”. The story was about a former NBA player who had gotten hooked on crack. Dude was married to a beautiful sista and they produced 2 beautiful daughters. Anyway to make a long story short, instead of getting his life on track with his family, he ran off with a white crack head chick that he couldn’t leave feeling that she would get hurt. This is a must story to see…This is a question that has been asked before but again why is that brothers are going out flaunting these Rosie O’Donnell, Roseanne Arnold, crack head Susies??? It seems as though brothers can only select from a certain social and economic pool??? Why aren’t there any brothers on the arms of wealthy white women like Paris Hilton??? And for those smart axxxx name 2 couples….

TAKING BLOGGING TO A NEW LEVEL!

Kevin Whited and Anne Linehan are two of the most visible people in Houston’s blog world. Their site Bloghouston.net is read everywhere from City Hall to Sheila Jones apartment in Southeast Houston. Bloghouston.net Is probably one of the most talked about websites in our community. It contains news and commentary. The publishers, Whited and Linehan, are very active in city issues. They actually investigated Metro’s rail line with a field trip for their readers. Thanks Kevin and Anne for stopping by the Insite…

VAN AND HIS PIES ARE ALL THE RAGE!

A former career military man and war veteran, Van Richardson, decided to help out his brother with a new pie business. That business is Mozelle’s crawfish pies and believe me they are out of this world. You may want to try one if you see them in a local store near you. I had one for dinner Sunday evening and it’s a taste to remember. And it fits the discriminating taste of this Louisiana native. I stopped by the HEB in the Woodlands to get a couple of shots of my good friend Van helping his brother out by marketing the pies. The customers and The Insite could not stop talking about the samples that will make you buy a whole pie. They can be found at Walmart, HEB, Rice Epicurean and Spec’s stores around Houston. The owners can be reached at Louisiana Jazz – 281-993-9115 for more information. And they’re actually made in the boot…
