I Read the News Today, Oh Boy. . .

As David Brinkley used to say on his Sunday morning show, “First a little news since the morning papers–most of it, unfortunately, bad.”

Here’s today’s lineup of top stories from the American City Business Journals around the country. You know things are circling the drain when the best news in the list is the death of Trammel Crow, Dallas developer titan. At least he  lived to 93, making millions doing what he loved. And he never had to see these headlines:
