THUMBS DOWN: To House Majority Leader Jim Wright of Fort Worth. During the delicate proceedings surrounding the signing of the Mideast peace agreement, Wright used his brief private audience with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat to make a private interest plea on behalf of Neptune Oil Company, owned by one of Wright’s most powerful constituents, the Moncrief family of Fort Worth. You’d think that by now Wright would have learned the meaning of protocol, not to mention good sense.



THUMBS UP: To the Dallas News city desk. A new repor-torial spirit has resulted in such investigative stories as the incompetence in the Housing Department and funding improprieties at NTSU – encouraging signs of life from a long-quiet paper.



THUMBS DOWN: To the Grand Prairie Police Department. A few weeks back, Grand Prairie resident Sid Hilburn tracked down his stolen car in a parking lot and called the G. P. police. The police suspected the car was being used in the robbery of a convenience store across the street. Hilburn graciously agreed to let them stake it out. There ensued a robbery, getaway, and police chase. The next morning, Hilburn was notified that he could come get his car at the police pound. Not only was his car riddled with bullet holes, but the police charged him $27 to get it out of the pound.
