Good Friend of Fair Park Sharon Boyd has this to say about Dallas' attempts to beg 20th Century Fox here to shoot the big-screen Dallas by promising millions in giveaways...pardon, incentives:
"Does any business pay their own way anymore? I wish we had a city ordinance prohibiting City Hall from giving any 'incentives' or tax abatements.
We never get the pay back we are promised on the incentives and tax abatements, and Joe Taxpayer never sees the benefit of giving millions away to millionaires."

To which I am sure the mayour and everyone else involved would insist, you gotta spend money to make money. Even if it's not really true. --Robert Wilonsky
