In the wake of a tragic runner-cyclist accident on the Katy Trail, on this week’s podcast we discuss our own experiences on the trails, and pose questions about multilingual signage for rules and joggers wearing helmets. Plus, once the trails stretch from Plano to South Dallas, will we have more accidents or fewer?

With new movies out focusing on Facebook — “The Social Network” and “Catfish” — we ponder whether parents in Lake Highlands being able to view their college sons’ and daughters’ entire social schedule is a good thing. Plus, should we bare it all on Facebook? Not even founder Mark Zuckerberg does so, according to this New Yorker story, but some of us do. (If you haven’t yet jumped on the bandwagon, you may find that this Real Simple article, well, simplifies the process, and if you’re hesitant about sharing everything with everyone, this  All Facebook blog post gives tips on privatizing a page.)

No shameless plugs this week except for this one: If you’re not Advocate‘s friend on Facebook, you’re missing out on neighborhood news updates and weekly contests. (Last week’s winners attended “Shrek the Musical”, simply for commenting on our wall.) Please follow us!
