Mayor Tom and His Tiny Scissors

While fast forwarding through a TiVo'ed version of Friday night's 6:30 p.m. rerun of The Office on KDFI channel 27 (the one where Ryan burns his cheese pita in the toaster oven), none other than Mayor Tom Leppert appeared in a commercial break for yet another ribbon cutting -- this time for the fake opening of Dunder Mifflin North Texas. I've got a few questions for Leppert's chief of staff, Chris Heinbaugh, on Monday, but until then, enjoy the mayor finally serving as the pitchman for the something that isn't a drain on the taxpayers.
