All I can say in response to this puff piece is that Holmes' tenure, like Lubbock, apparently looks better when viewed in the rear-view mirror.

The timing for the article was based on the number of prisoners executed from Harris County.

That's what I mean that it was "inexplicable." When couldn't you write THAT story?
