1. Don’t mess around with the folks over at Eagle’s View Church in Saginaw. Following the shooting death of a pastor in southern Illinois, they’re learning Krav Maga, a form of martial arts developed by the Israeli military. I prefer savate, but hey, whatever floats your boat.
2. Jim Schutze on the latest fly in the Trinity ointment: “Had Dallas Morning News editors ever once in more than a decade taken their greenest cub reporter and said, ‘Go find out what flood control experts say about this plan,’ the cub would have come back with my same story. It’s not a gray area.” That is a burn, and I doubt the DMN will take this lying down. I feel another Steve Blow column coming. Careful, Jim. He may compare you to Snuffleupagus this time.
3. The Mavericks came through with a big W in Portland last night. You can piece together all the action over here, as Eric Celeste helpfully live-blogged the proceedings. On a completely unrelated note: Gina Miller, you may want to contact an attorney. Or learn Krav Maga.
