Drive along the LBJ and tell me that.

"the LBJ"?? You must be from California. Here in Texas we don't call it "the LBJ", its simply LBJ. And LBJ is a freeway.....I wouldnt expect any vegetation to be growing in it, on it, or around it.

Who said it wasn't hot here?? It sure wasn't me! I'll be the first to tell you, I HATE Texas summers, but I think it would be great if we could land one, heat or not!

They could have it in September...nothing wrong with that. The temperatures are more agreeable then.

No I'm not from CA. And the salient point flew past you. Spare the "here in TX" nonsense. I've spent way more time in TX than should be legal. Funny thing is, I've heard plenty of locals call it the LBJ Freeway.

Apparently the terms scenery, greenery, forest and trees are very much open to interpretation.

I might suggest you venture out of the metroplex a little more often.

It's a big, bad world out there.

Bigger than Dallas!
Yes! there is a forest in Dallas it is called the Great Trinity Forest it is the largest urban forest in the USA!

Dallas - Unfair Park - Let's Go Camping in the Great Trinity Forest! After They Plant Trees.

"The latter document's an interesting read this morning, as it plainly states right there on Page 5: "THE FOREST NEEDS OUR HELP!" Which is what Schutze said earlier this spring. But, why come? Well, first off: "Only about 60-70 large trees are scattered throughout the 6,000 acres"; the Great Trinity Forest (http://www.trinityrivercorridor.org/html/great_trinity_forest.html - broken link) is filled mostly with "small diameter, low quality trees that do not support wildlife or allow recreational activities."

Because a couple of people can't take that someone mentioned Dallas.

Someone mentioned Dallas as a potential candidate, me and some other posters stated our reasons for why we didn't think it would be a good city to host it, and as usual, the Texas posters got their feelings hurt and came in to defend their fair city.

Personally Chicago seems most ripe for it. It probably needs something like this to boost it's international appeal. Atlanta had it in 1996, so I think the South has had it's turn for awhile. The Midwest has never hosted the games since St. Louis in 1904. Although it's interesting only three cities have ever even hosted the games: St. Louis in 1904, Los Angeles in 1932, Los Angeles in 1984 and Atlanta in 1996! The East has never hosted it so maybe New York. For a city of it's stature it's unusual it never hosts such huge events as an Olympics.
