Leading Off (5/27/10)

1. There are few things I hate more than snakes–UT football, olives, people who don’t know how to drive, intern applicants who put “internet” as a skill. But I really hate snakes. And apparently I should not go outside.

2. When asked why you didn’t disclose that there were traces of benzene in the air around Fort Worth, which could lead to cancer if the levels are sustained over several years, there are certain things you shouldn’t say. This, for example, is the wrong approach: “I don’t even know how to respond to that,” said John Sadlier, deputy director of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. “I don’t think there’s any need to. These values are so small.” I’m sure those words won’t haunt him.

3. You know how I hate snakes? I just remembered something else I need to add to that hate list: roller coasters, especially homemade roller coasters. But two Frisco kids don’t seem to mind them. In fact, they built one in their backyard.
