Leading Off (11/2/12)

Mansfield Man Jailed For Missing Jury Duty Five Times: Jose Bocanegra’s excuse was “Yeah I don’t want to wait,” which, really, is pretty spot-on. He also dodged his first summons by claiming he was a felon when he wasn’t, marking the first time in history that conversation has gone in that direction.

Temperatures Will Test The Record Books Today: The mercury could hit 90 today and tomorrow, 15 degrees warmer than the norm. Enjoy your pumpkin lattes!

Pantego Woman Sues Cops Over Burst Implant: I don’t know anything about breast implants, but it seems the technology should’ve advanced enough that I shouldn’t have to type that headline, no? Nonetheless, Rebecca Van Hooser claims one of her breasts popped when a Pantego cop threw her on the hood of her car following a headlight violation.

Goodbye, Bethany: I’m taking over the Friday Leading Off from Bethany Anderson, beloved commenter turned FrontBurner contributor. I will try to take the YouTube baton and run with it. Thanks for the memories.

  1. Friday was always my favorite Leading Off, partly for content, partly because it was ready with my first cup of coffee.

    So far: check, check

  2. I don’t comment much but I do stalk these halls daily as a reader. Bethany’s Friday Morning Leading Off was always my favorite post of the week. Thank you Bethany!! I hope we still get a great B. Anderson post every now and then. And Bradford, I enjoyed reading your posts on Oak Cliff People. Good luck with FrontBurner!

  3. Yeah, Bethany rocks.

    Bradford, did your parents name your brother Bartlett Pearson?
