1. As Trey noted, the greatness of Dallas County DA Craig Watkins was on display again yesterday, as the man who has made DNA testing a priority shook the hand of Charles Allen Chatman, freed after 27 years of wrongful conviction for a rape tests show he could not possibly have committed. Sources say several intelligent design advocates showed up to protest, arguing that, “Science is obviously confused.”
3. So, a Dallas woman’s pug escapes by digging under the backyard fence (the family has a doggie door). An admitted alcoholic from Tulsa, here on Christmas break, finds the dog, falls for it, takes it back to the Tulsa area and gives it to her daughter (who doesn’t live with her, because of the alcoholism), then writes a letter to the pug’s owner explaining this, saying she’s sorry and hopes they find another pet. She also sends $20. The Dallas woman understands, would be willing to buy the Tulsa woman a dog, but wants her pug back. Um, comments, anyone?
