Weekend Odds and Ends

Catching up on a few things today. I'm tired because I stayed up late watching The Sopranos and Entourage and I'm not feeling that it was a better use of time than sleep.

  • You know you're in trouble when your company is a news story in The Onion. "Even RadioShack CEO Can't Figure Out How RadioShack Still In Business."

  • I'm not sure how much people outside the media are interest in >all the navel-gazing over the Katie Awards scandal, but here are the Cliff's Notes: The Press Club of Dallas is investigating whether former president Elizabeth Albanese truly earned the four awards she won in a contest for which she helped arrange the judging. Documents obtained by The Dallas Morning News show that Albanese has a criminal record under the name Lisa Albanese centered on allegations of theft. Her successor as DPC president doubts the 2006 awards were judged at all. And angry Dallas journalists are throwing around the word "fraud" quite a bit.

  • Michael Davis at Dallas Progress amplifies his comments in Sunday's S-T S story on Dallas' Victory Park.

  • KZPS is going commercial-free and I expect them to continue to suck. UPDATE: Perhaps declarations of suckitude were premature. We'll see.
