    The Mess With Texas

    Jim Moore -- same feller who co-wrote Bush's Brain: How Karl Rove Made George W. Bush Presidential with DMN'er Wayne Slater -- has, like Mary Mapes last week, posted to The Huffington Post a "Why Texas matters" essay concerning the March 4 Democratic primary. Takeaway for further discussion: "Obama ... More >>

    Jail Cells and Pasties Highlight Zubar's Anniversary

    A Wednesday night out on lower Greenville offered a couple of surprises. First, parking was a bitch. Is Wednesday the new Friday? The second surprise was President George Bush with pasties.

    Nancy Brinker Gets 21 News Jobs, Rolled into One Very Fancy Title

    Nancy Brinker -- though you can call her "ambassador."

    Dogging the Presidential Library

    Interesting piece yesterday in The New York Times about the (impending?) (inevitable?) (invidious?) George W. Bush Presidential Library and Think Tank and Juice Bar on the S.M.U. campus.

Gerald Turner, president of the Board of Trustees. In this letter, which is making the rounds among the SMU staff and the writers of va ... More >>
