    You, Me & Dupree

    I sit up in the cheap seats in the city council chamber collecting the political equivalent of sports trivia. This week I was there waiting for an item to come up when a handsome young fellow with a familiar name went to the microphone to speak about...

    If You Can Read This...

    I've heard from several Friends of Unfair Park this morning complaining about our "new format," which is a grey screen with black type. Yeah, that sounds pretty unreadable. Trust me, it's not a new format. It's some kind of a glitch, and our people a...

    As In, "He Feels Awful"

    PAC It Up, People

    One of the two guys running for mayor is gay, though damned if I can tell which one. Good thing Reuters is bringing up the rear today in the parade of "Ed Oakley is gay" articles. Still, this one is a little different, if only because Ed Stoddard spo...

    A Summer-League, Cancer-Surviving Former Mav Tells His Inspirational Tale

    There's no reason for you to know the name Ray Johnston; he was a former Dallas Maverick, yes, but only a summer-leaguer. He was, not so long ago, just a 25-year-old loan officer with season tickets, as the Associated Press describes him today. And, ...

    When Getting Screwed on a New Car Takes on a Whole New Meaning

    In short, it involves a man who bought a car from a dealership that wanted it back one week later, going to far as to claim the vehicle had been stolen. And that man claims that because of the dealership's actions, he wound up in jail -- where he was...

    The Good, the Bad and the Fugly

    It's bad enough that WFAA.com's running what appears to be either a bloody-nose or Hitler-mustache mugshot of 75-year-old Jason Sowell Jr., who's been popped for selling drugs out of his Beverly Drive home. But then Brad Watson has to go and add this...

    Why I Love Mark Cuban

    Waiting for Laura

    It's 4:39 p.m. I believe this is a ruse to allow this very extremely awkward issue to lapse until a new council is seated after the upcoming mayoral election. I can see the wisdom in that from their point of view. But, speaking as a citizen, taxpayer...
