Critic Under Water
Just got off the phone with Arnold Jones, food critic and lifestyles editor for the Dallas Voice. As reported today by the Dallas Morning News, Jones' car drowned the other night as he tried to make his way through downed trees to his M streets home.
"It's kinda funny being the news," Jones says--although not so funny losing a Crossfire with just over 6,000 miles on the odometer.
He kindly gave me a ride in that car when I arrived from Prague and needed a lift for some necessary errands (like buying a car), and it is--was--rather small inside. Feels even tinier, he says, when filling with water.
Jones is fine. Waded to safety ("you smell like a sewer afterwards"). Now he's back in the hunt for a vehicle.
