I should have spoken out earlier–I drive past the grove of trees, formerly known as bald cypress, near the intersection of Woodall Rogers and Central every Friday and Sunday. Over the last six months I have watched them die a very slow death. Thanks to Dan X. “Quick Draw” McGraw for doing all of the research and pointing it out today in the DMN. (This is why we need newspapers.) The 1,100 trees were planted four years ago and nobody bothered to water them. I can’t wait for the trillions of people who plan to visit the Tut exhibit this fall to see them. Hello, TxDot and Texas Trees Foundation? How did this happen? I’m siccing Nikki and Don Henley on you. Then I will put some more hydrocortisone on my new tattoo.
