You see this story in The Dallas Morning News yesterday, about the fact Dunkin' Donuts plans on opening up to 125 locations in the area as soon as it can get off its jelly-filled ass? Well, like, that's all well and good; dunno if they're going after the Starbucks crowd, as Dallas' Only Daily insists, or the Krispy Kreme krowd, which seems more likely. But, well, gosh, we'd like to point out that you, dear Friend of Unfair Park, already read about this motherdunkin' expansion right motherdunkin' here -- like, oh, 10 dunkin' months ago. Trust me, we got the doughnuts-and-coffee beat well covered. --Robert Wilonsky
