How a judge beat AT&T. And how you can do the same thing! Stand up to corps that treat you badly |@dallasnews http://share.d-news.co/Q4IttUN
You have the right as a Texan to record any phone call, even if an AT&T customer service rep argues otherwise.

Let’s go back in time for the latest Watchdog news |@dallasnews http://share.d-news.co/er47xAU
Watchdog plays the role of a 1940s rat-tat-tat reporter, sharing the latest news about your world, which, of course, is 2015.

I do, of course, realize that as columnist chasing younger readers, probably dumbest way to do that is to write a 1940s Walter Winchell style column http://share.d-news.co/er47xAU

Appears I may be the only columnist in America who doesn't have a David Letterman story. I have a Johnny Carson story, but it's too late.
