Back to the Sofa

DAN MCGRAW
A few weeks ago, I did something I hadn’t done in 25 years. I made my way to a college town to visit someone whose couch I could  crash on for the weekend. At the off-campus house, I was awakened by folks coming and goin...


Tsuris

KRISTIAN LIN
I’m not ashamed to say it: A Serious Man confused the hell out of me. Most confusing movies are that way because they’re poorly made, but this one is incredibly well made. (One expects nothing less from the Coen bro...



Through a Lens, Gladly

JEFF PRINCE
The kiss between the young man and woman was sweet – a friendly peck, really. But it didn’t sound right. Needed more smack. The actors weren’t around anymore; filming had wrapped up months ago, and they’...


A Thousand Times No (Or at Least Twice)

In some ways, it’s reminiscent of the 1980s, when competing black Democrats, some who couldn’t stand one another, got in elbowing matches to stand closest to black presidential candidate Jesse Jackson.


Sacrificed to Shale

PETER GORMAN
Lloyd Burgess owns the Lucky B horse farm in Denton County. He made a good living raising and boarding horses there from 1993 until 2006, good enough to pay for a $350,000, 45-stall barn a few years back. These days though, it&...



Worth the Paper They’re Written On

DAN MCGRAW
A little more than a year ago, the Barnett Shale gravy train was shooting through North Texas at blinding speeds. Even while some residents were accusing the city council of surrendering Fort Worth’s future and environmen...


To the editor:

John Q. Public
To the editor: I’ve been reading the Weekly for probably 10 years. I know I can get more accurate reporting from the likes of Dan McGraw, Jeff Prince, and Betty Brink than I can from the Fort Worth daily paper. But I don...
