Eat My Dirt

A builder's guide to skirting the zoning laws and making the city look goofy

But just like the suburban movement of the last century, the back-to-the-city movement will be spurred less by price than by that more powerful human experience—dreaming. We dream of a better, more interesting, more civilized life.

A very few people in our political life in Dallas get it. Like I said, council member Hunt does. She knows what care the city must take not to kill this delicate, golden gosling. Too often she is alone.

The sloppy, crass, ham-fisted behavior of City Hall in the dirt skirts saga—not to mention looking goofy—is disturbing proof that a majority at City Hall still doesn't have an inkling. That's a real problem for us. We'll have to do something.
