Leading Off (12/18/09)

1. Security staff at Town East Mall in Mesquite swept in to protect the good people of Pleasant Grove, who were under assault by stupid T-shirts.

2. Dallas Can! Academy students love that chicken from Popeyes. But not as much, allegedly, as they love smoking pot in the bathroom.

3. The recession has hit Death Row. A report from an anti-capital punishment group shows that death sentences are down nationwide, including in Texas. And among the causes for the drop, they say, is the economic downturn, which has district attorneys declining to pursue the death penalty because of the added expenses involved.
