Ross Perot Jr.'s development company struck a private deal with TxDOT, selling land for a major project at least a decade away when no other property owner could.
Do you think that's fair?

Went to Elote Mexican Kitchen restaurant last night and saw 50 front pages from Nov 1963 newspapers about President Kennedy's death from across the nation on display, thanks to Al Wilson, who collected them a half century ago.
  #Mannatech  founder, banned from his company, still works from inside. #SamCaster  was hired by that company for consulting worth $300,000 for 6 months, plus expenses, plus an office, and an assistant.
"In 2007, #AttorneyGeneralGregAbbott  sued Mannatech and Caster, claiming that sales associates made false claims about the healing powers of the company’s products. Abbott charged that sales pitches included false promises that the pills, described by one critic as “sugar pills,” could help cure cancer, Down syndrome and other serious illnesses.
Under the settlement reached two years later, the company paid $4 million in restitution to Texas customers and $2 million for investigation costs. Caster paid a $1 million civil penalty and promised, once again, not to engage in deceptive marketing practices by making exaggerated claims." -- explains +The Dallas Morning News  #Watchdog +Dave Lieber
