Leading Off (7/25/08)

1. We survived Hurricane Dolly. It was a struggle, but, you know, with all the advance warning, South Texas was able to weather the “soggy mess.” Sounds horrific. In North Texas … yeah, we got nuthin.

2. An 18-year-old who was seen on video teaching a 2- and 4-year-old how to smoke marijuana was sentenced to eight years in prison. Again, as with many things, this sad story reminds me of a funny [adult language] Dave Chappelle bit.

3. And from the rich get richer file, the Dallas Country Club is getting a $51 million renovation of its clubhouse. And a University Park fourth-grader found a 2.75 carat diamond in a state park.

    I guess that $1.3 billion for a new Parkland is going towards the Rich somehow, huh?
