If you need Jim Schutze tomorrow -- and you will, you will -- you'll probably find him at Nana in the Hilton Anatole. Never tried the food there myself, but it does offer "one of the best views overlooking the Trinity River Corridor," says a media release Becky Mayad sent us this morning, in advance of a 1 p.m. "media briefing" on Tuesday.
Tomorrow at Nana, Mayor Tom will marshal his forces on behalf of the Vote No! Save The Trinity Committee. Sounds like a regular Hands Across the Trinity: Scheduled to attend the session are State Senator Royce West; Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price; University of North Texas Chancellor Lee Jackson, also a former Dallas County Judge; Tom Lazo, founder of Lazo Technologies; and Calvin Bluitt, a board member of the Trinity Commons Foundation and the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce. I just hope Mayor Tom keeps a copy of this in his back pocket. And I hope he says hi to Schutze for me. --Robert Wilonsky
