Leading Off (4/24/09)

1. DISD trustees put off a vote until May 14 to decide whether they should cut funding for learning centers in Dallas, due to public outcry over the issue. The trustees hoped they could make the next meeting less contentious, perhaps by holding it in a secret underground lair.

2.  Rep. Charlie Geren says he wants to kill the bill designed to help establish a downtown Dallas law school for the University of North Texas, saying “I’m going to kill it any way I can.” He’s also against the Easter Bunny, children, and the forces of good.

3. A convicted criminal says District 8 City Council challenger LeVar L.D. Thomas hired him to take down campaign signs for incumbent Tennell Atkins. Police are investigating, instead of, say, solving a real crime.
