1. Nice story by D-Lev in the paper today about some questionable city expenditures, including a $70,000 flat-screen TV and 1,000 candy dispensers that look like Dallas recycling bins.
2. A judge should rule today whether the trial against the Holy Land Foundation, accused by the government of supporting Hamas (deemed by the United States an illegal terrorist organization), will continue. Gosh I hope so. I think Holy Land trials have only been going on since I moved here two decades ago. Seems like we ought to give it time to play out, you know?
3. Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck is trying to end beer sales at Six Flags, a move with which others on the Arlington City Council disagree. Thank goodness someone disagrees with this. Have you been to Six Flags with a bunch of sugar-jacked kids? Without beer, how do you get through the day?
