Leading Off (07/14/08)

1. Dallas sanitation–it’s a gas, gas, gas: “The process involves burying several layers of pipe across a 30-acre trench, or ‘cell.’ One series of pipes will pump in water and landfill liquid, known as leachate. The moisture will saturate the trash, making a better food source for the naturally occurring organisms that turn the trash into gas.” Well, obviously.

2. Here’s your “Bridging Dallas’ North-South Gap” update. Here’s your Phil Gramm update. And here’s your Tony-Romo-falling-into-a-pond update.

3. Finally, if this guy is driving the Texas Rangers’ bandwagon, I’m going to have to politely ask to be let off at the next stop. (Well played, Sam Merten.)

    Genius story in the Reno paper on Tony’s golf course swim:

    http://rgj.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080713/SPORTS02/807130336

    “I was two feet from the water with a delicate stance, almost on my tip toes. I had to hit the shot to the right, and I did, and as I followed through the ground gave way.

    “I swung my arms three or four times trying to regain my balance, but it was too late. I fell on my backside and got wet up to my belly button. The pants drip-dried, but I did change my socks. I ended up making bogey for zero points after Jeremy fished me out.”
