This appeared in the Dallas Morning News today.
I'm not sure if many metroplex readers will understand it. But if I recall correctly, around 1990, over a series of months, a number of people were arrested at the rest stop along 287 near Alvord for alleged homosexual activity. Yep, it was illegal back then. There were allegations that those arrested were directed by Sheriff's personnel to a particular bail bond company to make the cases "go away".
