Quick recap: new Dallas Morning News editor Mike Wilson has a dog, and because he’s bad at naming things, he saddled that (I’m assuming) sweet, adorable dog with the name “Story.” Here are more good names for a dog, all of them better than Story, which is a very bad name for a dog. STORY!Read More
Zac Crain, a local magazine editor, told D Magazine that revelations surrounding district attorney Susan Hawk’s 2013 treatment for prescription drug use and other issues had prompted Heath Harris to announce his campaign, even though the election is more than three and a half years away, and since Crain knows how these things go, that prompted him to announce his own campaign, even though we’re now talking, what, almost eight years from now?
“I’ve got to build a base as early as possible,” Crain said to himself as he typed that sentence just now. He didn’t really say it. He kind of mouthed it. He does that occasionally when he is typing. He also softly curses to himself, but that is endearing probably.

I took this photo recently in a men’s room at the Nordstrom in the Galleria. What you see is a $1.00 fee to change your kid on the changing table. Other, free options, should you find yourself quarter-less with a less-than-crapless child:
– strip your kid naked, bath bottom half in the sink
– change diaper on the floor of the shoe section
– Leave? I don’t know. Again, I don’t have kids.

Earlier in the week, I asked if anyone was going to the Sweet Sixteen, out in Arlington. The response, mostly: I wish it was in downtown. Well, if you listen to KERA, it can be.
