Trampled Underfoot in Arlington
I like the way the Associated Press leads its story about Jerry Jones' latest way to pay for his billion-dollar-plus Jerryworld in Arlington: "Fans of the Dallas Cowboys who might not be able to get tickets to the team's new stadium in Arlington can leave their mark -- underfoot." In other words, folks who can afford ducats in the new joint will step on those who can't. Me, I think the so-called "pavers" -- which range from $150 to $375 -- look more than a little like tombstones, the way they're displayed on the Cowboys' Web site. Trying to come up with a slogan -- I'm thinking Unfair Park contest. Winner gets a sponsored brick. --Robert Wilonsky
