Thursday Roundup: Wait, Bacon Lube?

I think at this point, Mayor Tom Leppert ought to consider throwing in the towel on both the Trinity Parkway and convention hotel projects, and moving on to something else. Because right now it’s not going to be a very good legacy — or re-election platform — if that’s what he’s going to throw all his capital into. Even local coverage is tilting against Leppert now.

There’s a move afoot in Austin to get rid of red light cameras for good. In committee today.

Despite initial misgivings, I’m beginning to like Holly LaFon’s work over at the NBCDFW website. Her take on the proposed sobriety checkpoint bill — which violates the entire spirit of the Fourth Amendment — is pretty darn well done.

Finally — bacon improves everything. This is one of the three fundamental, eternal truths of the universe. However…this is for real, I think, from my homeys who brought us the miracle of Bacon Salt.

    hahahahahahahahahahahahaha, oink, hiccup.

  2. Tom says:

    Whoever is advising Leppert regarding his re-election campaign isn’t doing his or her job. Or the voters will speak for him by getting him out of office.

    As we learned with those artifical ‘bacon bits’, fake pig is as sorry a substitute for real hocks as a tofu doll is for a Hooter’s waitress. Or something.
