1. State Rep. Yvonne Davis has authored a bill to split DISD into at least two districts. In other DISD news: 580 teachers were informed their contracts would not be extended, and that they have one more year to get better or get to stepping. So it looks like district spokesman Jon Dahlander will be eating lunch at his desk again.

2. In other education news: one student at Haltom High School in Haltom City was attacked and stabbed by three others before school yesterday morning; a Cleburne High School athletic trainer was arrested on child porn charges; and a bobcat was spotted near Stewart’s Creek Elementary in Lewisville this morning. So it’s crazy all over.

3. And finally, if you were at the My Bloody Valentine show last night, please send me your description of the 20-minute noise symphony that ended the show (it was so loud I could feel the hair on my arms move). Descriptions I got at the Palladium last night post-show: the sound and feeling of jumping out of an airplane; an internal massage; like drugs without the drugs.
