This morning, a good Friend of Unfair Park shipped our way Noted Regional Comedian Dave Little's ode to the Trinity River toll road. Dave debuted the song over the weekend, at the aforementioned Amanda Newman birthday shindig at Club Dada on Saturday, then went into the studio Sunday to record the thing -- mostly, because Newman wanted to give it to Schutze, who, I understand, was against the Trinity River toll road? (Is that right?) And now, we share it with you. Happy Hanukkah. --Robert Wilonsky
