The Monday night open line: What are you watching on TV?

I'm checking out early. My Christmas presents included the third season of "Rake," an Australian TV series about a raffish defense lawyer in Sydney. I'm looking forward to some binge-watching.

Wait. What's that you say? There's something else on TV tonight? Just kidding:

WPS

Still ..... The Hog boosterism on Twitter and other social media beats all, particularly for a 6-6 team. All seem in agreement that Hog fans are showing more spirit — and are more in evidence on the ground in Houston — in advance of tonight's Texas Bowl. Which might tell you something about how fervently Texans view the great "rivalry" with Arkansas that more or less ended with the dissolution of the Southwest Conference a quarter-century ago.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
