Leading Off (9/23/10)

1. Did anyone else plan to get up at 2:17 this morning to see the super harvest moon, which won’t come again until 2029, but instead of getting up, they turned off the alarm and justified it with saying, “Oh, well, it’ll be back again in 19 years”? At least I thought about trying.

2. There are about 3,500 really happy electric car drivers today. Why? Because Half Price Books has unveiled its charging station, which customers can use for free through September of next year. There are two other such charging stations in Dallas. I think this is pretty cool. Since I’m now a downtown dweller who yells often at car drivers for various, sometimes unjustified reasons, I applaud all the efforts for a greener world. And, if you must know, I do this applauding while walking to work. (Unless it’s hot outside, then I’m driving. Or humid. Or raining. I think I’ll walk in snow. We’ll see. Probably not, though. Wouldn’t want to ruin my shoes.)

3. And here’s a story with a happy ending.  Christal’s, an adult novelty shop, went up in Haltom City. Within the first week, moms were on the phone complaining about the posters being used at the store. (No use in watching the video in hopes of catching a glimpse of any of the posters. They blurred them out). So, the store, in an effort to be a good neighbor, has changed the signs. And everyone’s happy. Count that as a win for the helicopter moms.
