DART Driver Shuts Down Tollway. So perhaps you were on the tollway last Friday afternoon when you realized your car wasn’t moving at all, and none of the cars around you were either. Turns out, as I’m sure you’re aware by now, there was a big accident involving a DART van driver kind of plowing into several cars without slowing down. If you didn’t know this, well, here’s a video. If you did already, please mention it in the comments and tell me how bad at this I am.
Shopper Takes Exception to Being Slapped, Shoots Slapper. Word to the wise, do not get drunk and slap a lot of people in a convenience store.

Wife Drives Off in Huff – In Airplane. So once two married friends of mine got into a huge fight outside a bar. She got in the car, and he thought he’d put his foot in front of the tire and tell her how she was wrong. Well, instead she threw a dirty diaper in his face and drove over his foot, crushing it. And they don’t even have a baby. Anyway, this couple got into a fight in Mesquite and the wife drove off in an airplane, which would’ve been an awesome way to leave in a snit if the landing gear had cooperated. (Apparently WFAA took that story down. Here’s another link to the Dallas Morning News Crime blog.)
LBJ Is All Messed Up. This just in: LBJ is something to be avoided. Seriously. Just trust me, and take an alternate route, then we don’t have to have stories about how people are surprised about how jacked up LBJ is. And yes, some of LBJ will emerge at the end of all this jacked-ness as a toll road.
Good Luck Finding the Internets. Well, for some of you, anyway. Come Monday, several thousand computers in the U.S. infected with malware will be unable to connect to the Internet until their owners can figure out how to uninstall the malware and reconnect. Â However, if you go here, you can check today just to make sure, and then you can rest easy that you’ll be able to see Peter’s Leading Off on Monday.
