I went to the Pegasus News party last night. Much love to Alan & Mike for being comped. Shouts out to Jeremy, Blair, Erin (sp?), and everyone else I talked to last night. Great band, plus I love hanging out with my people. Win win. I wish I could've stayed longer. Be careful if my homie Mike Orren gives you a gently used Santa hat for Christmas.
Must Gromer Jeffers of the Dallas Morning News keep writing the same article? I swear I've seen the same tired "insights" about the Mayor's race in his column at least 4 times in the last 6 weeks. Does he have more than 3 people to quote? Are we a major market or is this some college town outpost where newsflashes come in via morse code? I guess that's better than him salivating over young interns on their blog and writing garbage like this and this.
The DMN was scooped weeks ago by Shawn Williams at DallasSouthBlog regarding the clsoing of Black Images. Left out, of course, was Shawn's social insight on the plight of independent bookstores. We may talk in future weeks about how plans for the demolition of Wynnewood Village (home of Black Images) probably contributed to their demise and will cause gentrification in that area.
Most news shows still call everything south of I-30 'South Dallas.' Please get a clue. And a Mapsco.
I still believe that there are many people out there that don't respect the power of the young voter. I do. Let's keep proving them wrong.
If you haven't heard, the Albertson's at Hampton & Davis is closing. From what I've heard, not many people will notice. It joins the still-mothballed store at 67 & Polk, among others. Oak Cliff People had a great editorial talking about how the store had issues from day one. Surprised much?
Perry Homes' new townhomes near Bishop Arts are hideous, I don't care what anyone says.
Pinnacle Park, located at I-30 & Chalk Hill Road, is NOT the southern sector. It's West Dallas. I'm sick of people pointing to that place and calling it "southern sector development."
That's all...for now.
