Robert, as you know, I will be appearing on the KERA-FM (90.1) radio program, Think About It, I believe it's called, at noon today with Dave Levinthal of The Dallas Morning News to discuss important issues in the mayor's race. I wanted to tell you and share with our blog readers an important fact about my appearance that may not be readily apparent during the show. That is: I intend to appear on the show totally naked. Yes, totally. Naked. Not a stitch. The question will be whether or not Levinthal brings it up. And of course, if he does, this could be a chance for people to get an answer to the fascinating question Matt Pulle raises about me in Buzz this week. --Jim Schutze
