Leading Off (3/10/11)

Dallas Ranked Seventh Angriest City in U.S. Contributing factors to this include — you know what? I’m tired of spelling everything out for you jerks.

Mavericks Cough Up Late Lead, Lose to Hornets. New Orleans finished the game on an 8-0 run, thanks in part to a really dumb foul by Jason Kidd and a passel of missed free throws by Tyson Chandler. It’s something like the millionth loss in a row in NOLA for the Mavs. I don’t have the actual number in front of me, so you’ll have to do with my educated guess. Okay? I’M SORRY I CAN’T BE PERFECT LIKE ALL OF YOU.

Man Wrongly Imprisoned For Nine Days in Name Mix-Up. Francisco Daniel Romero is someone who deserves to be angry. Accused of a decade-old murder after a traffic stop and jailed, even though detectives had a photo of the real suspect. And you can be angry, too, if you live in Arlington, because you will be helping the APD pay for the mistake when the inevitable, and understandable, lawsuit happens.

Hit & Run on Henderson Avenue Caught on Tape. The surveillance video is crazy. Because, like the blunt commentariat point out, she just walks into traffic, and there seemed to be a considerable amount, all going around the speed limit. I feel horrible for the woman who was hit. I really, really do. And the driver should have stopped. Obviously. Obviously. But I have to say this: crosswalks aren’t magic. I, too, like to think of paint on asphalt as a sort of forcefield, usually when I’m bored or I’ve had a few, but it’s just not true.
