Perhaps surprising no one else but me, a prominent MidTex firm—Bracewell & Guiliani—announced today it would match the $160k bliss, before even some of the BigTex players have weighed in, such as Fulbright or Baker Botts.

BG

No doubt the fact that Mayor Guiliani would not want the NY branch of his own firm to lag too far behind the other prominent NY firms had something to do with B&G announcing ahead of FB or BB.

According to one commenter over at Above the Law, these are now the lists of fame and shame, respectively, in Texas:
