His campaign manager, who also moonlights as his daughter, is interviewing him, asking if people in West Texas will hate him for his role in the Texas Tech football fiasco that led to head coach Mike Leach's fi ...

Rmember when DISD considered replacing its logo? It might come up again.Edwin Flores said it a couple of weeks back: The Dallas Independent School District has a communications problem. Which is one way of putting it -- the nice way of putting it. And so, following months' worth of dust-ups and s ... More >>
Mention the words "Craig James," and chances are at some point your comments section will fill up with something like, oh, I dunno, something like this: "I've heard CRAIG JAMES HAS NEVER DENIED THAT HE KILLED 5 HOOKERS WHILE HE WAS AT SMU."

Pretty busy musical Thursday evening we have here, highlighted by three shows at venues that all begin with the letter "L." What are the odds?

So, you jazzed about the old Cotton Bowl's final matchup? The Only Team To Beat Florida vs. The Only Team To Beat Texas. Maybe it's just me, but I'm intrigued by Mississippi vs. Texas Tech.
