Clarification Regarding Houston Press "Best Of"

september 28, 2005  02:39 pm
We reported yesterday that "Houston Press' 'Best of Houston' was due to go to press this week, but was forced to close early in advance of Hurricane Rita." Which is kinda true but kinda not true, too. The Press did, in fact, complete production of its "Best Of" issue in the wee hours of Friday morning, several days earlier than usual, in case Rita prevented the paper from reopening the following week. But when the hurricane proved to be less destructive than initially feared, the staff returned to the office on Monday and resumed production. The first run was sent to the printer last night; the remainder will be printed this afternoon; and the 224-page issue will hit the streets with a thud as scheduled tomorrow afternoon.
