Several Friends of Unfair Park have asked about the Secret Security and Dallas police officers perched along the Dallas North Tollway overpasses a short time ago. They all wonder the same thing: "Who's in town now?" Why, it's none other than Dick and Lynn Cheney. The veep and the missus landed at Love Field Airport about half an hour ago, though, says KDFW-Channel 4, it's "for undisclosed reasons." And if Fox doesn't know why ... More gun-shop browsing maybe? I know what you're all thinking, though. Two words: "House." And "hunting." --Robert Wilonsky
