Stump grump

The Houston Press’ Troy Schulze gripes about a stump in this weeks’ paper. The stump, or lump, planted in downtown Houston’s Market Square park, is actually a dog carved by James Phillips from a live oak tree killed by Hurricane Ike in Galveston. Though Schulze calls the piece a brown lump, its syrupy varnish makes it seem more like pancakes. Schul;ze gets in a sideswipe at James Surls Point of View whle he’s there.
