How about a toll road here?

Coincidentally, today is the deadline to turn in the signed petitions ordering a referendum on the Trinity toll road. I got almost 1100 signatures myself, and kept a tally of those who knew about the issue and specifically did not want to sign. The tally ended up being 10% of the Dallas voters who were told about the issue said they would not sign. When we turn in the 50,000+ signatures, it will represent more people than voted for our current mayor Tom Leppert. How about them apples?

Check out the Trinity River today!

Everyone needs to see Michael Moore's new documentary on the health care industry (do those words even go together?), especially this opening weekend, if possible, when the movie industry values the statistics. It's going to be another painful exposition of how little this country cares for people, and how much it cares for profit. Check out the preview:

Precious Moments

My friend Kathryn and her daughter Erin (above) went to Kansas City recently. Erin's been accepted--with scholarship--to the Kansas City Art Institute! She totally deserves this because she's worked very hard for it, and is a very talented artist. On the way, they stopped at the Precious Moments Chapel in Carthage, MO. Awesome photos!
