    Tom Hicks and Jon Daniels Can't Wait to Meet You!

    And if you're in the mood to ask Hicks, "Like, WTF, dude?" do feel free to go see him this morning -- in 20 minutes, actually -- at the Rangers' new store on McKinney Avenue, which is all of six days old. Then ask Daniels the same question; he'll be ...

    Monday-Afternoon Quarterbacking

    But it does take the luster off Tom Leppert's resounding victory if he padded his victory margin with anti-gay voters. There's obviously no way to tell; even if there were exit polling on Saturday, who was going to admit to being a bigot? But maybe i...

    Selling Stevie Ray

    Turns out, Malone and Winders, who have been charged with the theft by Austin police, went to the wrong place -- because, as Norwine points out, the two signed a consignment agreement that explicitly stated the two owned the items outright. "It says ...

    Stealing Stevie Ray

    Odd thing is, the storage unit was broken into twice -- in February and April. Cops only found out about the missing items when they busted one of the accused, 29-year-old James Matthew Malone, for smoking pot in an Austin motel room. Officers found ...

    Dallas, You Stink!
