UM, THAT'S NOT A 'STUDY' THERE, CHIEF
by Trey Garrison    Sat, Feb 4, 2006, 01:54 AM

Now look, I'm the last person to defend panhandlers, but someone at CBS 11 News - I'm looking at you J.D. Miles - needs to learn some basic rules about extrapolating broad conclusions from such a narrow, non-random, unscientific sampling.

DIFFERENT TACKS BY DA CANDIDATES By Carolyn Barta
by Carolyn Barta    Fri, Feb 3, 2006, 06:12 PM

Direct mail pieces from Vic Cunningham and Toby Shook received this week suggest two different approaches by the Republican candidates for district attorney.  Cunningham is running for the Republican nomination, and Shook appears to be running for the general election.

Cunningham's mailer pictures him with Gov. Rick Perry and includes endorsements from 12 current or former officeholders, along with dozens of GOP precinct chairmen and other well known names in the party. The headline for the list touts Cunninham, a district court judge, as "The choice of conservatives we trust."

Shook's mailer touts endorsements from three police associations, including Dallas, and from retiring District Attorney Bill Hill and includes a ballot-by-mail application.  No mention of any other Republicans. An automated phone message from Shook also notes his endorsement from the current DA who he has served as top deputy.  While he might prove to be a stronger candidate in November, he'd better not forget that he has to win the primary first.

Frank Reilly and Marc Levin of the Austin law firm Potts & Reilly wrote the brief. Click here to view in PDF format.
