Leading Off

1. Smirnoff Music Centre changes its name to SuperPages.com Center. I’ll keep calling it what I always do: the place where my friend Jeff got drunk off Thunderbird at a Metallica show and broke the windshield of my Escort … Amphitheater.

2. Heroin, steroids, suicides, now a federal investigation into a fake ID ring. Is there one teenager in Plano parents don’t have to worry about? Maybe that’s why Stacey apologizes all the time.

3. Amid scandal, Lynn Flint Shaw resigns as DART Board Chair. After the Trinity vote, Jim Schutze was probably due for a win.

    As long as I can continue to receive second-hand highs from adjacent pot-smokers at Yes concerts, then they can call it whatever they like.

  7. Bethany says:

    I refuse to call it that. That’s just … retarded.

    “And that’s why Plano is an All American City.”

    Read the fine print on their water towers and city limit signs. Below the All-American shield logo reads “1994”. In related news, the Cowboys are re-branding the organization as “World Champions”, in light of Super Bowl XXVII.

    And that’s why Plano WAS an All American City. My bad, Brandon. I guess they’ll be stripped of their crown. I’ve got to start reading the fine print as I drive past the city limit signs.
    I’m much too busy, though, drinking from my flask.
