In the battle between Houston and Chicago over which is better, Dallas lost. Dallas lost by a lot.
“Dallas is a Cheesecake Factory with a sidearm,” tweeted Charlie J. Johnson, the homepage editor for the Chicago Tribune, casually ethering a city of 1.3 million. While a story in The Dallas Morning News was the proximate cause for the city’s unfortunate destruction, Dallas was merely collateral damage in a broader conflict with Houston. A fight over art.
