Portrait of the Mayor as a Young Baller

This photo of Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, taken when he was adorable years old, ran with this morning's New York Times piece to which I linked earlier. But because I didn't want to lift it from the paper of record, I asked Chris Heinbaugh, the mayor's chief of staff, if we too could have a copy. He asked the mayor's missus, and Laura Leppert was kind enough to send the big version -- big enough, perhaps, for some Mayor Tom tees.

"That's the way levees go"?
