Jerry Allen and the Former Dallas City Council ... All-Stars? Sure. Go With That.
Bill Blayes, Alan Walne and Donna Halstead -- The Ex-Council Members out of costume!
Few days back we peeked at Carolyn Davis and Dwaine Caraway's what-updates as served up on Dallas Delivers, the city's riotous no-holds-barred talk show served up on Time Warner Cable Channel 16. Alas, some of us don't have the cables, so the city's been posting throughout the week the entire series on YouTube; I'm totally getting the boxed set for my father for his birthday.
There are so many episodes from which to choose -- hard to recommend just one, much like the short-lived Andy Richter Controls the Universe, out on DVD on March 24. There's Tennell Atkins's chat with, among others, assistant city manager Forest Tucker and a DPD community liasion about crack houses, prostitution and the "loose dog issue" in District 8; Steve Salazar discussing some kinda business boom around Bachman Lake with Sharon Boyd; and Vonciel Jones Hill talking Southern Dallas development with assistant city manager A.C. Gonzalez and Joyce Foreman. But after the jump, a Very Special Episode of Jerry Allen's District 10 update -- featuring former council members Bill Blaydes, Alan Walne and Donna Halstead. Dreams really do come true.
