In equally unnewsworthy news, today is the last day of Laura Miller’s tenure as Dallas mayor. She fixed a lot of potholes, built a big homeless shelter (man, that was expensive!), pissed off smokers, presided over some agreement about a ineffectual airport that I really don’t understand, didn’t really do anything about crime, and was generally mediocre at best.
