Kevin Krause has the story of the harrowing events of yesterday. Dallas County Commissioner Maurine Dickey was trapped with her. As some of the commenters to that post pointed out, something ain’t right about a failed elevator in a medical wing of the jail — and no one noticing for 30 minutes. Shouldn’t there be an alarm in an elevator like that? Note to self: if I ever get locked up in the pokey (again), don’t get sick.
Update: A politically minded FBvian points us to this video of a protester in a chicken costume calling attention to the fact that Valdez won’t debate her opponent. Except Valdez has agreed to a debate.
