Leading Off (2/2/10)

1. LeAnne Novacek, the wife of former Dallas Cowboys tight end Jay Novacek, was found dead at her mother’s home in Burleson. It was an apparent suicide.

[I couldn’t not do that story. But I also don’t want to completely bum you out this morning. So let’s take a moment, pause and reflect on the good things in our lives, and then I’ll make with the jokes. Or “jokes.”]

2. If you intend to commit a robbery, make sure the getaway car is in working order. I’m not talking about nitrous injectors or cop brakes. Just something that gets you from point A to point B. Or at least gets you away from point A. Obviously, if your heist involves beauty products, and you’ve ensnared a 5-year-old in your plan, you have bigger problems. You know what? I’m sorry. This ended up bumming me out, in a completely different way from No. 1, and I bet I’m not alone. I’ll try something else.

3. “Carrollton soil is notorious for cracking and shifting.” Are you going to take that kind of smack talk from Fox 4 traffic reporter Chip Waggoner, Carrollton? I know Addison wouldn’t. Neither would Allen. Richardson might. Actually, Richardson has been feeling its oats since Bono gave it a shout out at the U2 show. Never mind.
