    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!

    Apparently, cities were ranked according to average high temps in the summertime and how humid a town gets. (Dallas is also in the Top 10 when it comes to "uncomfortable cities," which could explain the election of Tom Leppert as mayor, come to think...

    "In the Heart of Old Humid Dallas..."

    So, the big-screen Dallas was dead as of last week. Now, it's back on, according to John Travolta, who says he's meeting with a new director -- that'd be the third, by the way -- and hoping to start shooting here and elsewhere in early '08. Fine. Thi...

    Tom Leppert's Your New Mayor

    A woeful but way better-than-expected 85,590 turned out to cast their vote for mayor, and they've chosen Tom Leppert. And it wasn't even close: 49,512 votes to Ed Oakley's 36,078. Good night, Dallas, and good luck. --Robert Wilonsky

    Ed Oakley Was Better Than His Campaign

    First I thought it was pretty amazing in 1995 when Carol Reed elected the city's first black mayor. But in 2007 I think it may be more amazing she was able to elect a white Republican member of the Dallas Country Club. I wish in 2011 she would try to...
