by

Curt Guyette in News Hits and Jack Lessenberry in Politics and Prejudices take on a local story that went nationwide last week: the overnight jailing of billionaire Manuel 'Matty' Moroun and his bridge company president, Dan Stamper.

News Hits dissects the Moroun claim that the jailing was capricious and unexpected: "Nothing could be further from the truth." Politics and Prejudices considers the moment when: "Our worst citizen went to jail, despite his wealth and connections."
