1. It’s stories like this one — about the hubbub surrounding Dr. Robert Jeffress’ “Why Gay is Not O.K.” sermon at First Baptist Church of Dallas yesterday — that make me miss Bible Girl. I’m sure Unfair Park does, too; that column was a comment machine. I imagine losing that, traffic-wise, would be like if Wick told Tim that he couldn’t take and post camera phone photos of Eric anymore.
2. Really good piece in the DMN about the 1988 Carter High Cowboys. Never understood why no one ever wrote a book about the controversial squad, as it would have been a nice bookend to Buzz Bissinger’s Friday Night Lights, written about that same year’s Odessa Permian Panthers. Turns out Gary Edwards finally has. And I completely forgot Royce West’s involvement. Anyway, good stuff.
3. And finally: boom goes the dynamite.
