All the Dallas news that's fit to print in The New York Times: Missouri Tigers QB Chase Daniel spoke Saturday about growing up a Southlake Carroll High School Dragon: “There can’t be a more supportive and nurturing high school environment in America.” Then he and his top ranking got drilled by No.9 Oklahoma later that evening.
Dallas-based Greyhound is now trying to sell it three-year, $60 million rehab, down to the bus drivers' unis. Says its local marketing director in today's Times: The bus line is trying to get people "to take another look at Greyhound." OK, sure -- we'll bite.

And, on the more stylish front, in yesterday's New York Times Style Magazine, Kenny Goss and George Michael's foundation was feted for bringing the Y.B.A. set to Dallas.
