Culbreath in "Grave Condition"
A concerned Friend of Unfair Park called early this morning with the news that City Plan Commission chair Betty Culbreath is in "grave condition" at a local hospital, following emergency surgery last night. Apparently, Culbreath had a routine procedure done earlier in the week that went awry, forcing the surgery for the mayor's appointee to the commission. --Robert Wilonsky
UPDATE: The Dallas Morning News confirms what we heard this morning: that Culbreath suffered a tear of the colon during a routine colonoscopy earlier this week, and that she's in intensive care at Baylor University Medical Center.
