Leading Off (1/21/15)

More earthquakes, and Wrestlemania. Maybe the two are related?

Four More Earthquakes Strike Unsuspecting Region. I didn’t feel any of them. Go about your life until you’re told this is all just a viral marketing campaign for the Left Behind reboot. Yes, they remade the Left Behind adaptation! No, it’s probably not any better than the original starring Kirk Cameron! But it has Nicolas Cage, you say! I can’t keep these exclamatory sentences going so I’ll just rebut by saying have you even seen Joe?! It was pretty good and reminds you that Nic Cage probably doesn’t have to do Left Behind movies!

Toyota Breaks Ground on New Plano Headquarters. Plano, not Dallas. I know that’s hard to differentiate for some mayors.

DISD Officer Involved in Shooting. So many questions, but I’ll just leave it at “Why did a DISD officer try and intervene in a traffic infraction off-campus and why did this suspect try to run and what was that altercation about and why did a DISD officer shoot at (but not hit) this suspect?” Very straight-forward.

Fort Worth Undertakers Slapped With Additional Charges … The mortuary owners were tagged with felony theft charges yesterday, in addition to the multiple “abuse of corpse” counts from last year.

… and the Undertaker May Slap Some Fools in Arlington. Because Wrestlemania is coming to Jerry World. (That link is for WrestleZone.com, which I intend to use in every Leading Off henceforth.)
