1. I can’t stop staring at Troy Aikman‘s eyes on the cover of the new D Magazine. What’s going on there? It looks like the Highland Park resident has Borg implants that give him X-ray vision.
2. Did you know the TAKS test is being replaced by the STAAR test? Parents of eight-graders will particularly want to pay attention.
3. Speaking of eighth-graders, today is my monthly shift in the Highland Park Middle School/McCulloch Intermediate School cafeteria. If you’re a student on that campus, let me know you read this by saying “thank you, sir” as I hand you your lunch. I’d even settle for “thanks, homie.”
