Death and Destruction at the Belo Mansion!
Last night's thunderstorms had even my cat thinking the Rapture had come. Anxious to see what kind of damage the weather had done throughout the city, I checked my trusty Dallas Morning News this morning, where I learned that traffic is snarled, power is out and--horror of horrors--"Overnight storms knocked over a tree at the Belo Mansion."
When asked for comment on why I couldn't see pictures of crowded intersections, damaged businesses and flooded parkways, DallasNews.com cackled back at me: "Did you really think this is all about what happened to you? Imbecile. Bow to the Belo machine. Muah!" --Andrea Grimes
