The annual State Fair news cycle has begun! To review: it starts with a close-up look at Big Tex's clothes. This will be quickly followed by food news -- what are they gonna fry this year? Then back to Big Tex for the always dramatic installation. It never varies. These pre-Fair traditions must be observed. It's important.

And this year there's something extra special and new because sky rides are returning. Yeah: I don't why. Last month when I was walking around Fair Park, I saw the setup and was surprised to discover that the gondolas are each the size of a Mini Cooper. I'm not getting in.

Best to stay inside the Hall of State and contemplate the genius of George Dahl.

I don't know which is the better find: those Tex pics are great. But the carnytown blog is jaw-dropping. Always something good over here, Irene.

That is really nice of you to say.

Carnytown is absolutely the best place to get the latest news on Pig Scrambles.

And I might be wrong about those gondolas -- they seem bigger than Mini Coopers. Am I a coward?

I think I may have been in Carnytown Friday, if it was possible.

You were in the very heart of Carnytown.
