Jim Schutze's Dream Come True
Just a programming note: At 11 this morning, KRLD-AM (1080) will broadcast a live debate during which Mayor Laura Miller and city councilmember Angela Hunt will go at it over the Trinity River toll road referendum Hunt's pushing for. Just so happens today's also the day when the mayor's hosting her "Sink the Petition/Save the Trinity" press conference at Fretz Park, while this morning Hunt's group, TrinityVote, filed the necessary paperwork at City Hall to commence collecting petition-drive signatures. (Jim Schutze, you picked a hell of a day to go out of town.) You can listen here or check back here later, when we pick and choose a few quotes from both Miller and Hunt and use them wildly out of context. --Robert Wilonsky
