The missus called this morning with word that the Jewish Community Center of Dallas is employing security guards. She saw two this morning parked out front, and one posted yesterday at the front desk of the new workout facility. A JCC employee confirmed to the missus that, yup, they were hired after Naveed Afzal Haq (allegedly) shot up the offices of the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle on Friday, killing the federation's 58-year-old director of annual giving and injuring five others (three of whom remained in serious condition as of Monday, according to The New York Times yesterday). Me, I thought they were there to protect the joint from Mel Gibson. --Robert Wilonsky
