A Friend of Unfair Park who's looking to do you a solid points our attention to this missive from the City of Dallas -- a little something about the 2008 Statewide Warrant Roundup. As in, "Beginning Feb.16, officers will arrest people with outstanding warrants pending before their respective municipal courts." Says our Friend about the heads-up, "Might save some folks a trip a Uncle Lew's." Actually, folks hauled in over the weekend will go to the city's Detention Center, but you do get the point. --Robert Wilonsky
