I brought the boy into the office today. We had no choice -- even he was getting cabin fever, and better Unfair Park HQ than another day staring down his LEGOs. But now this from 3700 Ross:Breaking news: Dallas ISD schools will be closed on Friday, Feb. 4, 2011. Administrative offices will be ope ... More >>

Your daily dose of music news for Tuesday, January 20, 2009... Apparently the Notorious B.I.G. biopic wasn't the hit it was built up to be. Beat in the box office by a movie about a bumbling mall cop? Really? U2 is streaming its first single, "Get on Your Boots," from the forthcomi ... More >>
There's a small but interesting item of note on the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport Facility Improvement Corporation Board's meeting agenda today -- and, right, whatever that is.
