Kroger Stores behind Dallas alcohol sales petition

Many people are unaware that the recent petition to put alcohol sales on the ballot in November has been spearheaded by Kroger Food Stores, who stand to make millions off of the possibility of alcohol sales in their stores. Progress Dallas, the committee formed to organize the petition drive, is headed by a Kroger executive, and they hired a local political firm that specializes in legalizing alcohol sales to put out publicity and collect signatures.

My latest article for gives you a peek behind the curtain of Progress Dallas, and proves how big money is behind this petition drive, not public sentiment. Click here to read the article.

A word of thanks....

I wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent their condolences after the death of my mother last week. She fought a brief but brave fight against ovarian cancer, and your continued prayers are most appreciated. The Dallas Morning News was gracious enough to allow me to write a tribute to her this past Mother's Day which was published in the May 8 (Saturday) edition of the News. You can read the online version here.

Thank you again for your support, and if you are still blessed enough to have your mother around, give her a hug or give her a call.
