Leading Off (10/02/09): Our Salute to Governor James Richard Perry

1. Gov. Ricky and attorney general Greg Abbott want to assure the good people of Texas: They will fight to keep a Dallas gay couple legally wed, to protect the sanctity of traditional marriage.

2. Dallas ISD board president Adam Medrano is accusing fellow board members of pulling a play from Gov. Ricky’s book: Don’t like what’s on a public meeting’s agenda? Conspire to get the meeting canceled.

3. So you’re Gov. Ricky’s cousin. You served on his re-election campaign steering committee. You’re enjoying an evening out on your backyard deck, just you and your shotgun. Long story short, you end up dead. Rest in peace, knowing that Gov. Ricky “couldn’t pick [you] out of a lineup.”
