Late Monday, on The News' Dallas City Hall Blog, Dave Levinthal wrote that Mayor Tom Lepert had a "hush-hush meeting" with T. Boone Pickens earlier in the day. About what? Levinthal didn't know, as the mayor's chief of staff Chris Heinbaugh stonewalled him with a "Not at liberty to discuss." Wrote Levinthal, "Now that the red cape of secrecy has been waved in our faces, we'll get back to you soon with details." But there haven't been any -- till this morning on Sportatorium, where Richie has uncovered news of Pickens' tour this week of the recently renovated Cotton Bowl. Why come the walk-through? Let Richie tell you. --Robert Wilonsky
