    What, Them Worry?

    Matt's at Gilley's right now, sharing a Shiner with Mayor Tom -- can't beat 'em, drink 'em under the table, we say. Actually, this is how Matt breaks down the not-quite-a-victory party at this very moment. I ran into council member Dave Neumann, wh...

    And the Margin Widens ...

    Took long enough -- turns out, says Our Man Downtown Matt Pulle, "a flurry of votes" came in after 5 p.m., delaying the counting of votes. But, looks like you can get 90,000 or so folks to sign a petition calling for a referendum, but yo...

    Vote No! Crowd Already Toasting to Victory

    Well, there's a pattern here. Every time I call Carol Reed on election night, she quickly pounces on the phone and sounds jubilant. Reed, who managed Tom Leppert's mayoral campaign before heading up the Vote No! effort, sounded extremely optimistic a...

    No, Really -- Now Meet Preservation Dallas' New Executive Director

    Well, so much for this. About three months back, we announced -- rather prematurely, turns out -- that Preservation Dallas had appointed a new executive director to replace Dwayne Jones, who left for the Galveston Historical Foundation almost a year ...

    Waiting on a Train

    "Who is it?" I asked. "Javier." I racked my brain. Javier? I couldn't recall meeting anyone named Javier and figured he'd dialed the wrong number. But then he said, speaking in Spanish, "Ms. Feldman? I met you in Mexico City, remember? You were ask...

    And Then There Were Two

    The struggling radio station with the questionable leadership and the meek signal failed to see its first birthday, pulling the plug and forgoing its all-sports format for what - last I checked - sounded like old-time gospel music. That leaves us wit...

    Some SMU Profs Offer Their "Loop Solution" to the Trinity River Toll Road

    David W. Matula seems like a pretty smart dude. For the past, oh, 33 years he's been a professor of computer science and engineering at SMU. Pardon? Computers in 1974? Like, he must be from the future. Also been a teacher and researcher at the Univer...

    Is There Some Kind of an Election Today?

    Doubtful it's a sign of things to come: Bruce Sherbet, the man in charge of counting votes for the county, expects a woeful turnout of some 50,000 to 60,000 -- the passionate few, about half of whom have already cast their lot in early voting. And, y...

    At Least One Developer Thinks a Toll Road Taking People Away from the City's a Bad Idea

    Uh, Jim, You Actually Called Mayor Tom a "Lackey" on TV Last Night

    So Tracy Rowlett did in fact use our interview on his weekly "Perspectives" mini-show last night. I liked the piece very much, mostly because it gave me an opportunity to call Mayor Tom Leppert a flunky on TV. I do, indeed, look like crap in the pie...
