River of Dreams, Not Just Another Billy Joel Record You Don't Own
On Novemebr 19, Mayor Tom Leppert and 11 council members gathered at the YMCA on Goldman Street for a special community meeting, where the subject was, among other things, the awesomeness of the Trinity River Corridor Project and what it means for West Dallas. This morning, the city posted to the YouTube the entirety of the speech -- so, after the jump, a presentation in four parts featuring Rebecca Dugger, who's heading up the project, with an intro from City Manager Mary Suhm. The video, incidentally, is my Christmas gift to Jim Schutze. Got it for him on Betamax, still his preferred home-video medium of choice. --Robert Wilonsky
