Political And Other Miscellany From A Stout Democrat In Dallas Texas.

MORE GUARDIANS WHO WON'T BE GUARDED: Since the Startlegram has adopted the hubristic attitude of the DMN and the NYT, requiring intrusive sign-ins to see stories, I'll just quote the report from Grits for Breakfast:
Nine of Texas' 36 crime labs may shut down rather than undergo a professional accreditation process mandated by the 79th Legislature, the Fort Worth Star Telegram reports.

A slew of innocents convicted based on false analyses from Houston, Fort Worth, and DPS crime labs led the Legislature to require the accreditation, which many including this author considered a minimalist solution compared to other proposals that didn't make it out of the process. It's surprising so many facilities feel they can't operate under the higher standards.

Then again, maybe that's why Texas has had so many problems at crime labs in the first place.
