Leading Off (5/1/09)

1. Mayfest in Fort Worth and Dallas’ Cinco De Mayo celebration have been canceled due to concerns over swine flu. It seems large crowds help spread the disease. Other things to avoid besides crowds: touching, breathing, existing. 

2. Tom Hicks, under a money crunch, sold the Mesquite Championship Rodeo to a group of investors. Raise your hands if you knew Tom Hicks owned the rodeo. Now put your hands down, because I think raising your hands spreads swine flu.

3. High-end luxury hotels in North Texas are reducing their rates to attract customers. After reading the story and seeing the new cheaper rates, I had the reaction Homer had when Marge’s therapist told him that she charges on a sliding scale and can accept as little as $100: “Keeeep sliding.”
