Dallas: A Truly International City

You may feel this slight sting, Dallas. That's pride fuckin' with you. Because there are two stories outta Dallas going national this week: the one with which we're all wearyingly familiar by now, but also the tale of the Dallas undercover officer who discovered $400,000 worth of cocaine in the sweet confiscated ride in which he'd been tooling around for, like, two months. Actually, it's not just a national story -- like, oh, here 'tis on the BBC Web site. Which I particularly like, if only for the fact it helps me convert pounds into kilograms (50 lb. = 22 kg) and dollars into pounds ($400,000 = £200,000). --Robert Wilonsky
