Jim Schutze just left the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, where Tom Leppert and his eight-piece band were inaugurified, and he sends back these "two amazing discoveries."

One, Your New Deputy Mayor Pro Tem will be none other than Dwaine Caraway, who replaces
Don Hill Elba Garcia in the position. (Garcia will likely become Mayor Pro Tem.) He has to be voted in by the entirety of the council, and that's expected to take place at 1:30 this afternoon. And two, Schutze adds, "Leppert is actually A. Starke Taylor with Botox -- but not enough."
