Leading Off (7/15/09)

1. Michael Young told the DMN how cool it was to see President Barack Obama at the All-Star game last night. And then, in the comments section of that post, folks demonstrated why unmoderated comments can be a disaster (“Wow. I just lost all respect for Michael Young. I never pictured him being a fan of a Socialist President.”) Meanwhile, over on InsideCorner last night, Evan Grant opened up comments on the game — and everything went swimmingly. So there’s that.

2. Frisco is going to get a Wal-Mart Supercenter. How very retro.

3. I’d like to draw attention to this story for two reasons. First, the headline: “Perpetrator Plots Potted Plants to Pinpoint Burglary Targets in Lakewood Area.” That’s some solid work. Second, because the story suggests a way to thwart the bad guys. You see, they put the plants by doors and driveways. When the plants weren’t moved, the bad guys figured the homeowners were on vacation. So if you live in Lakewood, and if you go on vacation, make sure to hide a ninja behind each of your outdoor potted plants.
