1. The Dallas City Council voted to deny Woodard Paint & Body Shop a special-use permit to stay open on Ross Avenue, because the city wants restaurants and apartments there instead. It means the business will have to close in 2010, which is great, because the Woodard family has owned its shop there since 1920 and I made a bet with Bill Woodard they couldn’t make it to 100 years.

2. American Airlines is forced to give up and waive its third-bag fee for the military, even though just about every carrier has a similar policy and most soldiers either got a waiver or were reimbursed for the fee anyway. Probably not a bad idea to stay away from the sixth floor over at AAHQ1 today.

3. And finally, Southlake Carroll will start offering sushi at one of its concession stands at Dragon Stadium. Oh, heavens. [good-natured head shaking] Raw fish? [paternal chuckle] What will they think of next?
