1. After confirming a 12-year-old student at one of its middle schools has the new strain of swine flu, Fort Worth ISD has shut down the entire district, beginning today and lasting until at least May 11. And all UIL athletic events (in the state, not just Fort Worth) have been postponed until May 11 as well.

Randy Sundquist shouldn’t be allowed to testify in court for any reason, because he had a history of lies and misrepresentations, and had been fired because of it. But after he was reinstated, he kept testifying — somewhere between 50 and 100 times — so the D.A.’s office had to send the letter again. I’ll set the over/under on how many cases this kicks in the jeans at 50, and take the over.
3. And finally, there’s a fake cop on the loose.
