Leading Off (08/31/09)

1. The good folks at SMU have abandoned plans for a pedestrian bridge leading from DART to the Bush presidential library. You know who wouldn’t have given up? The good people at Baylor. They would have built a bridge–over a moat with magic fish–that rivaled the Golden Gate. Of course, Waco lacks anything remotely similar to DART. And yet the city gets mentioned in every single news report about the library. Go Bears!

2. In incredibly sad news, a pregnant woman who was struck by lightning on Thursday not only lost her baby–she, too, died yesterday at Parkland.

3. Does your letter from an outfit called Property Tax Assessor–with promises of hundreds of dollars they can save you on propery taxes for a mere $55 fee–sound too good to be true? It is. The form they offer to work this miracle? You can get it for free on the Tarrant County Appraisal District website. Oh. And they overstate how much you can actually save. Obviously.
