When my editor, Kendall Louis, told me this issue was going to be about “Wild Fort Worth,” I just assumed it was going to concentrate on its early beginnings — the 1800s, the gangsters that frequented Jacksboro Highway back in the ’40s and ’50s, ... Read more

I may have experienced a miracle the other morning. I was northbound on Interstate 35 near downtown, and I actually reached the speed limit. Many of you probably don’t believe that, but it’s true. Sure, it was only for a few seconds, but still. A... Read more

  I'm glad this issue of the magazine is finally paying tribute to my favorite meal of the week. Brunch. Now that hasn't always been the case. I was first introduced to it when I was an 18-year-old freshman college student in New Orleans. My par... Read more
