After Chris Heinbaugh's heads-up yesterday about the city repairing its broken seal, Intern Jesse stopped by Dallas City Hall toward Wednesday's end to check that "S" out. I showed the photo to the boy this morning before he left for school. He grinned and demanded a high-five. "We fixed the city," he said, at which point he announced he's running for mayor. A close-up on the other side.

Dallas can't seem to get anything right. I'm glad I moved to Fort Worth.

I know the city's broke but a can of Brasso is, what, $6? This calls for one of Dallas' many vigilante cleaning squads to swing into action.

It would be refreshing to have a new mayor in office who still believes in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and expects fully-funded summer vacations. Then again, would that really be new?

It might take more than Brasso, if the seal has been "treated" like the visitors "treated" the Henry Moore 2-piece sculpture....

Oh for f**k's sake, I'll spring for a few bottles of Brasso if we can get someone who works for the city to spend a few minutes polishing the sign so it doesn't look like s**t.

I'm not sure that it doesn't look worse now; does no one with the city comprehend how odd that appears?

Like I just told Robert, Harry should be proud. He's accomplished more for the city in a couple days than Carolyn Davis has in almost four years as a council member.

Maybe someone should suggest to CM Davis that she could go out and polish the "TEXAS" and make herself useful!

Guess we'll have to wait 33 years for it to match the other letters.

Guessing there wasn't enough money to polish the other letters to match the new S?
