Dallas City Council Has Been Replaced by Pod People


And the good news is, they’re my kind of pod people.  Never in my decade of living in Dallas can I recall the council doing one thing right.  And now, twice in one day I read stories on the Unfair Park about the council doing, or about to do something incredibly right for a change. 


Must be Pod People.

First there was this:

Please recall my rant from 2008 about bike helmets.  A silly ordinance used to shake down taxpayers by issuing chick-shit tickets.

And then

What a glorious day to be a Dallas resident where I can finally bike to Love Field without a helmet and fly on a cheap airline and not have to be subjected to schtickful flight attendants.

And in, hopefully, 11 days, Pecan Lodge will reopen in Deep Ellum. 

Now I just need to get that craft beer / pie house opened up across from work on Elm, and Dallas would be perfect.

Dallas is finally getting National props it deserves, but if NYT was keeping up then this would be on the Santa Fe train and not just katy.
