If all politics is local - as former U.S. Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill auggested - how do national issues such as the Wall Street bailout, the War in Iraq, and immigration filter into Austin’s pressing topics of infrastructure and transit systems, alternative energy development, and a healthy social and cultural economy?
