1. DISD trustee Ron Price called a news conference yesterday to say he has “no confidence” in the district’s current administration. Also yesterday: Price withdrew his request for the school board to hold a vote of confidence in Superintendent Mike Hinojosa. All of which sets the stage for Hinojosa’s annual evaluation today. “It will not be a kind evaluation,” Price says. Trying to beat him out for understatement of the day, trustee Jerome Garza added, “Given the financial situation in the district, there’s going to be a lot to discuss.” Oh, you think so, doctor?
2. Though it was overshadowed by a thing or two, yesterday the city council voted in favor of changing the name of Yale Boulevard to SMU Boulevard. I hope you’ll join me in saying: how dare they. Now I’m going to totally confuse people when I give them directions to Barley House or — hmm, I guess that’s it. As you were.
3. A North Carolina Internet concern bought the domain name GeorgeWBushLibrary.com for $10 — then sold it back to the library’s web team for $35,000. The name of the company that pulled off that gambit? Illuminati Karate, which I’m sure is currently making Eric Celeste’s potential band/fantasy football team name pants go crazy. When I attempted to reach the IK gang for comment, they sent me this link to a Slam piece about ex-Maverick Sam Cassell. Not sure why.
