Arlington popped up in most of the headlines Tuesday on the Crime and Safety page at Star-Telegram.com.
Coincidence? Perhaps, but let's not assume it has only been negative news.
The city did, afterall, gain recognition from the NCAA for succesfully hosting of the 2014 Final Four basketball tournament at AT&T Stadium.
But with all the headlines from Arlington, we didn't want to overlook the one from last night's City Council meeting, a showcase for strong opinions on freedom to carry guns and free speech.
The group has petitioned to strike down a city ordinance that they say restricts their freedom of speech.
They also were stunned by Mayor Robert Cluck’s decision to limit the group’s total speaking time to 30 minutes, no matter how many speakers were present.
“That is something a tyrant would do," said one member of the group. "It’s just absolutely disgusting."
Cluck responded: “I’m sorry. That’s up to me.”
