Welcome to Dallas, a city of honored felons.

Our latest Einstein is a local boy ... Dallas’ Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway, who recently honored convicted felon football star Michael Vick with a key to the city. Although his decision wasn’t cleared in advance with Mayor Tom Leppert or anyone else on the city council, Caraway held his event at a local night club during Super Bowl week and was videotaped announcing that he’s “proud of Michael Vick.” As he hands Vick the key, he says: “You’ve earned this, Michael. We appreciate you.”

Keys to the city are usually ceremonial and not very important, but this is an awfully low bar that Caraway has set. Caraway claims he was focused on Vick’s efforts to turn around his life since leaving prison. I WANT TO GAG AT THE THOUGHT OF THIS. Vick is still on probation for running an illegal dog fighting operation and for torturing and murdering animals with his own hands, and then goes back to making millions of dollars playing for the Cowboys’ most despised rival, the Philadelphia Eagles.

I just can’t comprehend how or why the city of Dallas — or ANY city, for that matter — would “appreciate” a horror like Michael Vick.
When challenged afterwards by just about everybody for his mind-numbing stupidity, Caraway said, “I care deeply about animals, but Michael has been speaking to children about staying in school and making positive choices about picking friends.”

I’m speechless. Dwaine Caraway is just another brainless boob who’s ready to slobber all over any rich jerk who can throw a football. I think he should Google “Michael Vick Dog Fighting,” click “images,” and then take our damn key back so we won’t have to get all the locks changed.

Thank you for reading this.
