How do descriptions like “dire” and “unpalatable cuts” sound? That’s the word from Dave Levinthal, the ace city hall reporter for Dallas’ Only Daily Newspaper, who joined Rick Wamre and myself to talk about the impending crisis.  What’s going to happen?

We also found a couple of minutes to discuss the 2011 mayoral race. To download or stream the podcast, click here. It’s about 21 minutes and 29 megabytes.
