Leading Off (10/21/09)

1. And it begins. Construction for the Woodall Rodgers deck park starts this weekend. The whole thing will be shut down. Essentially, you need to prepare yourself mentally to be inconvenienced from now until 2012, when the project is finished. Glenn Hunter is outraged and has sworn that he’ll never again drive on a road.

2. Ellen DeGeneres gave away a car yesterday at Sewell GMC. A segment showing the giveaway will air on her show today. Spoiler alert: Mark Lowry from Theater Jones, who was dressed up as Octomom, lost the car to a scarecrow. Which is another reason why I like the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Yeah, I said it.

3. The headline says it all: “Singer Thought Dallas Officer Was Going to Kill Him in ’07 Confrontation After Night of Drinking, Foosball.” The strange tale of Steve Holy’s horrible, terrible, no-good night of partying surfaces again as a judge tries to decide what punishment the cop deserves. And that gives me a reason to link back to the 911 call Holy made that night. A classic.
