Houston Press food critic Katharine Leigh Shilcutt tells Romenesko readers that the pooper has left his “goods” in the alt-weekly’s parking lot two or three times in the last week. “We don’t know why he’s doing it,” although she notes that homeless people hang out in the area. The man in the ExxonMobil surveillance photo is doing his business next to a Press marketing person’s vehicle.
“Don’t ask us why someone was pointing a camera at our parking lot,” writes the Press’s Richard Connelly. “We’ve never understood the inner workings of Big Oil.” (I’m told that an ExxonMobil employee who is friendly with a Press staffer shared the photo with the paper.)
