Four Seasons Houston sues NAACP
after annual convention

Houston Business Journal, by Shaina Zucker

Original Article

Posted By:Four_Leaf Resident, 1/24/2013 2:20:15 PM

A lawsuit filed last week in Harris County claims the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People did not pay its bill at the downtown Houston Four Seasons Hotel for its 103rd Annual Convention in July. The hotel claims it is owed $99,500 for room, banquet and finance charges. The convention, most notably recognized by national media as the event where Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney drew loud boos for his health care reform views, was held July 11 at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

Good one, poster 7.

In that the naacp has established a reputation as a deadbeat organization, other resorts and hotels are on alert. And they better be careful because if bigger deposits and tighter contracts are required, the naacp may scream discrimination. Cue up deadbeats jesse and al for boycott calls against anyone who dares not bow down to the naacp.

But if they decide not to accommodate them again due to their past behavior, that still makes them ´racist´ according to the left.

Sure the organizers have skirted off into the night with a pillowcase full of cash. Typical, and sure they will have a knockdown dragout over who pays the bill.

The most prestigious civil-rights organization in the country doesn´t have sufficient respectability to pay its bills. Worse yet, no one is surprised. If I belonged to the NAACP, I would resign in shame.

The Naacp feels the city benefits from associated sales because they were in town. Actual results show a sales decline as everyone stayed away.

The bill didn´t list the damages. Was that put directly on the individual´s bills ?

I hear their next big event is for former ACORN employees.

George H.W. Bush sure does get around. The former president was on hand Wednesday night when the new 2013-2014 Houston Texans Cheerleaders squad was announced — and he looked mighty pleased to be there. Bush, a close friend of Texans owner Bob McNair, sported a big grin as he presented each of the 35 cheerleaders with a red rose and thanked the squadmembers who visited him during his extended hospital stay late last year. Amid the almost surreal scene, observers didn´t know what to look at first — the scantily-clad cheerleaders with abs of steel

Roberts Elementary recently welcomed new neighbors when a parliament of baby owlets and their mom (or dad) nested up in a tree outside of the Texas Medical Center-area campus. They must have taken a few wrong turns on the way to nearby Rice University. CultureMap reader Annie Kansas brought her camera along in the carpool line and snapped a few portraits of the new family, which has been "creating lots of excitement" among teachers and students at the school.

In the not-so-distant past, the 1994 American-French film Stargate spawned a television series, comics and video games and ran over and over again on some network akin to Lifetime, on a kind of channel you tuned to when nothing better is on. Whether it´s the film´s provenance or the premise that deciphering symbols could connect seemingly dissimilar worlds, there´s a comparable element of connectivity and alignment — minus the science fiction, ancient Egypt component — when considering the proposition of the Texan-French Alliance for the Arts collaboration with Paris collective 9éme Concept.

As the world´s premier maker of luxury leather goods, Hermés creates treasured items from the most beautiful materials on earth. The art of craftsmanship remains the company hallmark. But for inspiration, designers retreat to a small space above the famed Hermés Paris flagship store on Faubourg Saint-Honoreè. Here, in what was once the office of Émile-Maurice Hermés, who headed the company from the 1920s until his death in 1951, they return to the past amid the many treasures the Hermés family collected over the years.

In college football, the only time it pays to be No. 1 in January is when the final polls of the season are released. But the Texas A&M Aggies are certainly abuzz, thanks to CBSSports.com’s Dennis Dodd. On Tuesday, Dodd released his 2013 preseason power poll. Never mind that the college football season doesn’t start for eight months. He has the Aggies as his No. 1 team. Yes, Texas A&M. Even though Alabama won the national title and proved that they reload in Tuscaloosa, not rebuild.

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
