1. Jenny the Elephant’s new home — a 10-acre African Savanna attraction at the Dallas Zoo — will be ready by next spring. But since it’s still at the Dallas Zoo, Mayor Leppert should expect a sternly worded letter of rebuke from Lily Tomlin any day now.
2. Howard Johnson, the first black homicide detective for the DPD, retired. And since he did nothing to get Jenny the Elephant moved from the Dallas Zoo, he should expect a caustic e-mail from Lily Tomlin in the next week or so.
3. There’s going to be hail and wind and a bunch of other weather over the next couple of days, so be careful. Mother Nature, look for a wry text from Lily Tomlin for ruining Jenny the Elephant’s day.
