Leading Off (6/30/09)

1. The Federal Highway Administration may not build the Trinity toll road inside the levees because of concerns that they won’t, you know, do what levees are supposed to do. That cackling sound is coming from Jim Schutze, who is sitting in a chair next to me, wearing nothing but a “Told Ya So” placard and a smile, waving two middle fingers in the general direction of Wick’s office.

2. Dallas County commish-types will vote today on whether to “take part in a regional planning effort” for the proposed inland port. Any time you got a chance to be part of something that special – I mean, good grief, this planning effort is regional – well, yeah, you’ve gotta lock that down.

3. After yesterday’s high-speed chase, there was another one this morning about 4 a.m. that lasted almost two hours, ending with a woman’s capture near White Rock Lake. Now, I’m not saying there’s a trend here, but if you see two priests driving a Ferrari doing 150-plus, I think I know what’s going on.
