Leading Off

1. Strip club owners are fighting a state-mandated $5 cover charge, which would be used for sexual assault prevention. Nearly 75 percent of the Morning News readers are against the idea on its online poll, most saying it would set a bad precedent. I voted for it, because it would be the cheapest such cover charge in town.

2. Two men in pig masks and gray overalls robbed a Frisco jewelry store. Please, people, move to Dallas. So much safer.

3. I think the headline is all we need here: “Judge orders monkey returned to bipolar owner in Fort Worth.”

    does the state also require that the $5 be folded length-wise?

    Also leading off, if you weren’t at Nokia Theater last night, you missed the greatest concert ever. All hail Stevie Wonder! The man’s still got a voice that will knock you on your a$$. Bonus: Stevie told all the “haters” to just die and go to h-e-double hockey sticks. Tell it, Stevie. Another great moment was when some ladies kept interrupting his story with “we looove you Stevie” and he says, “I’m sorry, can I talk? At my own concert?”
