Perry appoints TYC conservatorship

Today Gov. Perry appointed a conservatorship for the Texas Youth Commission, which will be widely hailed a good move to bring the troubled agency into order. Although he initially resisted such a move, Perry has appointed Jay Kimbrough as conservator.

I can't take credit for breaking the story though; see the Chron's blog post

UPDATE: I can't stand being wrong. It wasn't a conservatorship, just a conservator. See the DMN's analysis of the compromise.

UPDATE #2: See Vince's post on why Kimbrough is the wrong man for the job
