Texas Standard for August 23, 2016
Lynch mobs are thriving in Texas, only these days they’re online, and kids are often the victims. Now, a push for a law to stop them. And: What’s less likely than this – Donald Trump stumping for votes in the solidly democratic capitol of the reddest of states? We’ll hear what really behind his Texas swing. Also: The feds say they want to close private prisons. Now, Texas is talking prison closings too, but not for the same reasons. We’ll have the back story. Plus: The politics of science: In a debate over what’s causing earthquakes in North Texas, the EPA shakes things up. All that and much more on Tuesday’s Texas Standard.
