Leading Off (3/11/10)

1. Guess what? It’s technically legal for you to talk on a phone in a school zone! So forget those darned kids and their stupid safety. Get on that phone and start chatting!

2. On his way to lunch one day, Bryan Jacobs saw a woman weaving in and out of traffic on I-35. When she hit a wall, he realized she was knocked out, so he pulled his truck in front of her car and forced her to stop. Doctors discovered the woman had a tumor on her brain. Jacobs is now nominated for a national award called Citizen Service Above Self Honors. I like Jacobs. Not just because he saved a woman’s life and possibly other lives, but because of his view on marriage: “I’m glad to know she and her husband, who have only been married a year, get to bug each other for another 70 to 80 years,” Jacobs said.

3. I don’t think it’s ever too early to start thinking about corny dogs, fried Elvis sandwiches, chicken-fried bacon, and–my favorite part of the State Fair–OU/TX. So I was elated to see that the State Fair theme has been announced: it’s “Super Sized Fun.” See what they did there? They tied it in with the Super Bowl. Maybe Big Tex will do one of these.
