Leading Off (2/4/14)

“Friends Say Murder Victim Was Fatally Shot Twice Over a Dispute Involving Tacos.” I don’t know how a person gets fatally shot not just once but twice. In any any case: please, people, tacos are widely available. Just stop it.

Harold Simmons Didn’t Leave You Any Money. His will was partially unsealed. Lots of names and so forth were redacted. Still, I feel pretty confident in saying that you can’t quit your job today.

D.A. Craig Watkins! Race! Inflammatory Comments! I didn’t hear the district attorney on the radio. But from reading this DMN account of what he said, I gather the following: Ethan Crouch is white. Josh Brent is black. D.A. Watkins is black. The jury in the Brent case had black people on it. And white people. Tom Nowak is running against Watkins. Nowak is white. There is another candidate running against Watkins. She is a female. I’m not going to mention her name. She knows why.

Another Reason the DMN Is Struggling. Jacquielynn Floyd writes a column about a very local issue. I’m talking, of course, about Philip Seymour Hoffman’s apparent overdose.
