You Want More Police Officers? Come 2013, Dallas Could Be Full of Them.

We began the day with Angela Hunt; might as well end the day with Angela Hunt. Because only an hour ago, she Twittered some interesting news, as you can see from the photo at right. She offered further enlightenment when reached by Unfair Park this evening: Yes, indeed, the National Fraternal Order of Police is considering holding its national convention in Dallas in 2013.

Hence, the DPD HQ tour today, as well as stops at Gilley's and other hot spots (?) so designated by the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau officials showing off the city to the five FOP representatives in town. I asked Hunt if their decision was contingent upon the construction of a convention center hotel. She laughed, then ran her car into a telephone pole. --Robert Wilonsky
