    Morning News Denies Its Own Sorry History in Price-Inland Port Story

    Oh, I swore I wasn't going to respond to the stuff yesterday by Tod Robberson on The Dallas Morning News opinion blog yesterday, but now "Wylie H Dallas," the scarily well-informed omnipresent pseudonymous blog commenter, has got me all stirred up.

    Dallas Wants to Ban Museum Tower-Like Death Rays from the City's Future Skyline

I can't stay out of a debate where the word "cockeyed" has come into play. I can't tell you why. It's probably deeply ... More >>

    Rick Perry Thinks Morning News Columnist's Kinder, Gentler Hell is Bull

    In his column Sunday, the Morning News' Steve Blow wrestled with the the problem of hell, or at least the conservative Protestant vision of it. How, the question goes, can a supposedly loving, forgiving God condemn souls to an eternity of unbearable torment? Blow's answer is that God doesn't. Witho ... More >>
