    Two space-related items, only one of which is actual "news." As in: Leland Melvin could have been a Dallas Cowboy. The former University of Richmond wide receiver was drafted in 1986 by the Detroit Lions -- in the 11th round -- but he pulled his hams...

    Cuban Takes Machete to Papers' Sites

    What is defined as news has been changed to fit the Web. Allowing that to happen may have been the newspaper industry's biggest mistake. Wire service aggregation passes for comprehensive news, and papers print the same stuff. That's stupid. In additi...

    The City Should Do Real Well at Running a Convention Center Hotel

    One of the high concept ideas here will be spending zillions of tax dollars to create an "anchor around the convention center," by which they mean a government-subsidized hotel. The purpose of getting City Hall into the hotel business (they've alread...

    Deck the Walls With Dallas Artists

    Buying a beautiful piece of art is an intensely personal endeavor when buying for oneself, and an intensely freaky endeavor when buying for someone else. But maybe you've got a loved one who is mostly tasteful human being except for their home dcor....
