Public News

Ah, the PN. I can still remember the first time I ever read it, way back when I’d just started college – it was my first exposure to nipple rings, music columns, and hot-sex ads. Pretty damn cool. Unfortunately, due to some poor business sense, the original PN went under and had all its assets bought by the Houston Press. Several PN staffers went on to form The Houston Other, but then that went away, too. Damn shame on both counts.

Of course, in this city everything old is new again. I heard a couple of years ago that the Public News was coming back, and while I haven’t found a real-live copy of it myself (it’s apparently concentrating on the “Metro North Houston” area now, and I’m in the SW ‘hood), I’ve been told that yes, it does exist. Good to hear it…
