In Dallas County's defense, those areas just aren't widely available anymore here. That's why Collin, Rockwall, and Denton Counties have boomed. Look at the links Lakewooder posted. Has any one area in North Texas seen as much development as the greater Uptown area the past decade? Dallas isn't going anywhere, it's just transitioning. I guess I'll stay living in denial, because I'm still not worried about Dallas.
Thank you! Im sick and tired of the Dallas vs. Fort Worth bull****.

The region is prosperous and that includes both cities and all burbs.

I really think American culture instills laziness more than we realize.
This is very true...

Can't argue with logic. It is unfortunate though especially when the brain power is there in the youth. We just need direction and a reason to be industrious.

A curious anecdotal primer by and for people who know nothing about Dallas and apparently urban patterns. I'm guessing written by 20-somethings.

On the upside, I'm always happy about more Latinas.

That has to be innate, or borne of one's upbringing, IMO.

Both authors are in their 30s and have spent considerable time in Dallas. Took 8 seconds on Google to find that out

Shocking. An astonishing lack of knowledge wrapped in juvenile musings. I guess we might as well read Teen Beat if that what NYT calls reporting these days.
