The answer on the then/now thing I was talking about, which is worse than I remembered:  

Houston and San Antonio had 19 full-time (Chronicle, 7; Post, 5; Express-News, 2; Light, 2; KTRH-AM, 1; KPRC-TV, 2) and three session-only journos (KTRK-TV, 2; WOAI-AM, 1) covering the capitol in 1989 and now have three, all in the Hearst bureau.
