It's a 5 o'clock world

Posted By on Fri, Feb 4, 2011 at 2:38 PM

The whistle has blown early here. The line is open. But this final note:

* Ice slid off the roof of Cowboys Stadium today, injuring several people, one critically. Mid-winter in North Texas is not proving a friendly setting for the Super Bowl. I know well the perils presented by falling ice when thaws begin. Ice slides from the Pulaski County courthouse roof have not once, but twice, crushed my wife's car. A person wouldn't have survived. The second go-round, the car barely did.
