So it is that Democrat-Gazette publisher Walter Hussman was spotted in Austin, Texas, kicking the tires on the Austin American-Statesman, Arkansas Business reports.

Back in March, it was reported that nobody topped $50 million in a bidding process for the big daily. The bids were based mostly on real estate value.
