Mr. Dallas Eagle competition begins tonight

Leather for your life

Cows beware as leather needs go up for Mr. Dallas Eagle. Dallas has made big strides in state and national competitions, so the new titile holder will have some big shoes — er — boots to fill. The meet and greet starts Friday with the contest running through Saturday. In the end, 2010 winner Scott Moore, pictured, will pass on the title.

DEETS: Dallas Eagle, 5740 Maple Ave. 8 p.m. Through Saturday.

Dems Beware

Here’s a scenario that would have sounded laughable a year ago but no longer seems implausible. Imagine the year 2016. Republicans appeal to LGBT voters by claiming responsibility for ushering in marriage equality throughout the nation. They point out that a Republican judge, a Republican governor and a Republican attorney were instrumental in repealing Prop 8, while the Democratic president did everything he could to stall progress on an important civil rights advance.

It could happen, Dems.
