Leading Off


1. Soon-to-be Republican nominee John McCain gathered money from the publishers ($5,000-a-head fund-raiser) and editors ($250 a person) of Dallas yesterday in separate events. Roger Staubach attended one of them. You get one guess.

2. Dallas Police Department will spend more than $1.6 million in overtime as it gears up to stop the crime wave that always seems to follow rising temperatures and my return from my annual summer Vegas trip.

3. California-based Cost Plus rejected a takeover bid by Fort Worth’s Pier 1, fearing complications from trying to implement the latter’s advanced wicker technology into its own line of white plastic patio furniture.
