Lonesome Dove Catches Fire. Tim Love’s celebrated Fort Worth restaurant caught fire this morning around 6:30. Early reports suggest the flames were extinguished before too much damage was done. I’m sure Nancy will follow this story on SideDish today.
Fourth Case of West Nile Diagnosed in Dallas County. What’s up, Oak Cliff? We are still doing way better than last summer, but let’s be careful out there, people.
Drunk Man Burns Himself in Hot Shower. It’s kind of a slow news day, so you’ll forgive me for heading back out to Fort Worth for our third item this morning. Seems some pour tosspot wanted to wash off all the jick oil from a night of boozing. But he fell asleep in the shower, which was apparently way too hot. He was burned so badly that he had to be taken by helicopter to Parkland. I just imagine this guy, years from now, having to explain how he injured himself. Repeatedly.
