About Us

Go beyond the headlines. Beyond the he-said, she-said of the news pages. Join Houston Chronicle Opinion Editor and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Lisa Falkenberg as she and editorial board members tackle urgent, vexing and just plain intriguing questions in the news. From Beto to Trump, bail reform to education, the migrant crisis to church abuse – they explore issues in Houston, Washington and across Texas through the lens of a single question. Sometimes, they even agree on the answer.
