Here's something else that got lost in the snowdrift: Earlier today, the Dallas Independent School District send word that come Sunday ...
Drill teams from Thomas Jefferson and W.T. White high schools will perform during the Super Bowl XLV halftime show, which will feature the Black Eyed Peas as the headlining act.
TJ's drill team is called the Liberty Belles. W.T. White's? Something.
Also: DISD just announced its plans to make up this week's four long, lost days:
The district plans on using its two designated make-up days on April 22 and May 23, then request a waiver from TEA for the other two days missed this week.
Knew it. When informed of the district's plans, the boy grinned, then said, "Good. Thank you for telling me that."
