For Your Thursday Listening Pleasure (?): An Entire Dallas Mayoral Candidate Debate

Below, in the comments accompanying Sam's recap of Tuesday night's mayoral debate at the Fairmont Hotel, several readers wanted -- nay, demanded -- a fuller accounting of who said what. To that end, one Friend of Unfair Park pointed out that the debate's sponsor, The Real Estate Council, did indeed make available a downloadable podcast of the night's goings-on. So we downloaded it in order to make it available below. Should not be used when operating heavy machinery.

Incidentally, I'm due for a debate recap myself on Monday night, when the Thomas Jefferson High School Student Council, along with the Dallas Chapter of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly, hosts a debate at 7 p.m. in the high school's auditorium. Opening act, DISD trustee Edwin Flores, is "slated to make opening remarks," per the district's heads-up. Might as well go -- it's on the way home. Meet me on the smoking porch.
