1310 The Ticket Adds a Channel. Robert Philpot at the Star-T is the first (that I can see) to get confirmation that The Ticket will keep the 1310 AM frequency but now add 96.7 FM. Here’s my super awesome good analysis™: adding the new frequency will not light a fire under Gordon Keith hot enough to make him ever again write a Musers playlette. But in a rare feat of Leading Off journalistic enterprise, I asked Keith to comment on this development. He says, “I would comment on the story, but as it stands now, my comment would come across as scratchy and have the vague underbeat of Tejano music. Plus, if your media outlet is anything like mine, people can’t get your website north of the Bush. So why bother?”
Latest DISD Scandal: Teacher Posed for Playboy! I’m a journalist. It’s my job to search the internet for things and look at things on the internet. So Cristy Deweese, 21, is a first-year Spanish teacher at a DISD school. And some folks have their hackles up because back in 2011 she was Playboy’s co-ed of the month. I read this story, and I got to doing some serious journalism. As WFAA reports, “Concerned parents have come forward, worried that their kids have seen Deweese’s photos.” Here’s the thing, though: I COULDN’T FIND ANY PICTURES! What I’m saying is: help me out here, parents.
Richardson Residents Worried About Coyotes. Read this ditty from Channel 11: “Candace Newcomer was walking her son home from school around 3 pm a few weeks ago when a coyote crossed their path. The wild animal, related to dogs and wolves, stood less than 10 feet from them. ‘I was very shocked,’ Newcomer recalled. “I was shocked at just the brazenness of it.’” At the risk of overusing the caps-lock, LADY, YOU ARE THE NEWCOMER!
