    Patrick Michels​I hate that I have plans for Thursday. I'd much rather be at Eddie Deen's, where the Greater Dallas Republicans have a fundraiser scheduled: "Boot Scootin' With Mayor Tom Leppert." Or, maybe, "Boot Scootin' With Mayor Tom Leppert ...

    Wednesday Morning Wake and Bake

    15 UNT football players found a unique way to show school spirit. The first sip: As Richie pointed out yesterday, somehow Todd Dodge’s job is safe as UNT football coach despite an 0-8 start and a defense that ranks dead last in the nation in points allowed per game.
