Longtime local activist and politico Lorlee Bartos has a message for us regarding our Belo Mansion post of this morning:
Belo Mansion has nothing to do with the Belo Corporation. It is the headquarters of the Dallas Bar Association. Can't blame Belo on this one. Its history includes being a funeral home where Bonnie and Clyde were laid out.

To which Andrea responds: "It's still called the Belo Mansion, which continues to piss me off." And our Ms. Grimes does have a point: It was, after all, the one-time home of Col. A.H. Belo, founder of The Dallas Morning News. So it's not that wrong. --Robert Wilonsky
