Turns out, Art Acevedo is not only the police chief we respect, but the one we adore, as evidenced by him telling an Austin radio station that, counter to Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick’s assertion that finding Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl jersey was important, he didn’t consider it a priority. We wouldn’t go so far as to proclaim adoration for the other Houstonians doing good things invited to this month’s party—it’s something you feel or you don’t, you know?—but we would definitely high-five them. They include Anthony Pinn, the Rice professor dedicated to preserving local hip-hop culture, who recently added Pimp C’s papers to the university’s archives; Monica Uddin, one of dozens of local attorneys who’s provided pro bono services to travelers caught up in President Trump’s travel ban; State Rep. Gene Wu, who’s introduced a bill to the state legislature to stop the prosecution of 17-year-old Texans as adults; Ceron, fabulous single-monikered hairstylist to Houston’s stars, who, along with his husband Todd Fiscus and Kathryn and Colby Swain, is chairing the April 7 Contemporary Arts Museum gala; and Janie Enloe, the local woman and genius behind Houston’s first-ever Mac & Cheese Fest, taking place April 15. Wait, actually, we might adore Janie, too!
