I'm at a McDonald's ("Did somebody say wifi?") across the street from Carrollton City Hall. I made it to the press conference an hour early. The trip was extremely long -- 3 hours, 15 minutes -- but largely uneventful. The exception was a trio of young women on the Trinity Railway Express, who boarded the Dallas-bound train at CentrePort/DFW Airport and decided to air their gripes about office politics within earshot of an entire railcar. It's interesting how people who commonly ride transit block out distractions, no matter how shrill. I'm sure at least a half-dozen people wanted to tell the loudmouths to put a lid on it, but no one said a peep.
