CBS News on How Video Games Saved Dallas

Technically, I guess, that'd be Plano -- if we're talking about Gearbox, which CBS Evening News's Mark Strassmann does in the piece that aired last night and follows after the jump. And Grapevine, since he mentions GameStop. And Mesquite, if we're talking about id ... though Strassman never mentions the name of the Doom creator, which is moving to Richardson anyhow. Ah, there we go: The Guildhall at Southern Methodist University, subject of this cover story in the paper version of Unfair Park back in the go-go Oughts. Wait. Back up. Gearbox is doling out five-figure bonuses? Why, yes, I do believe I could be a Quality Assurance Tester.
