Leading Off (6/17/10)

1. So the people at Southwest’s headquarters are talking about an unusual shipment that was headed to Dallas last week. An employee at Little Rock National Airport noticed a crate didn’t have the proper labeling on it. So the employee opened the crate up. Inside were 40-60 heads and head parts. While this shipment may be part of an underground black market ring, it may also be normal protocol for a continuing-education program for physicians. Either way, I bet that employee not losing his head will sure put him ahead of his co-workers.

2. Vendors are being given the short end of the stick at Dealey Plaza where policemen are cracking the whip. But the vendors aren’t necessarily damsels in distress. Apparently some of them are fans of spitting and intimidating. But really I think we all know who can be blamed for this, that dang Erykah Badu.

3. If you’re catching up on The Bachelorette while skimming news articles and not really paying attention to what you’re reading, the following sentence could be rather jarring. “All of a sudden, I see Romeo in somebody’s mouth,” Tricia Toole said. But it’s okay, Toole’s just talking about her dog who was mauled by a bobcat. And apparently, these bobcats are running wild in Plano. So be careful out there. And don’t worry about Romeo. It cost $2,400 to put in 200 stitches, but he’s now doing fine. I can’t say the same for The Bachelorette.
