The Cotton Bowl Parade Returns. Not Exactly.
AT&T officials want you to know this WFAA-Channel 8 story from Friday is right. And very wrong. I got an e-mail this a.m. from Natasha Seeley at AT&T announcing a press conference tomorrow morning at the Dallas Museum of Art, during which Mayor Laura and the Kilgore College Rangerettes will provide details concerning the AT&T New Year's Parade scheduled to take place the afternoon of December 31. But do not call it the Cotton Bowl Parade. Ever. See here:

And the Cotton Bowl gets yet one more kick in the bowls. --Robert Wilonsky
