Fort Worth Fixation
Since we live in Fort Worth we may seem Fort Worth fixated. We've been told we have way too much fun making fun of Fort Worth's Star-Telegram newspaper, most recently in
The Envy of the World, all about how Fort Worth turns the world green with envy.

Fort Worth Gas

Impressed in Texas
Over the years we've been impressed by many good things in Texas. Canton's First Monday's was the first time a Texas attraction impressed us. The first time anything in Fort Worth impressed us as honestly enviable was the Main Street Arts Festival

Feedback
We get a lot of interesting feedback, often from people amused, sometimes from people not so amused. We get feedback from people in Fort Worth who like our take on what we see and feedback from other Fort Worth natives suggesting we leave town and never come back.

Fort Worth's Dallas Obsession
Fort Worth has some sort of inferiority complex regarding Dallas, and with good reason, basically Dallas makes Fort Worth green with envy, which causes Fort Worth to imagine other places envying Fort Worth in some sort of civic psychological transference, according to a shrink we consulted about Fort Worth's Dallas obsession. One sore point is Dallas has the world's largest bronze sculpture. Of Longhorns. Sort of a Fort Worth trademark. Another sore point is Dallas has the successful Dallas Farmer's Market. Which apparently Fort Worth did not know existed when Fort Worth opened what Fort Worth claimed to be the first public market in Texas modeled after Seattle's Pike Place Market and others in what was the most outrageous example we've experienced yet of a slight tendency in some Texans to exaggerate and hyperbolize.

Fort Worth's Best
One thing Fort Worth could put more focus on is what we think is the best thing about Fort Worth, that being the Stockyards. The Stockyards is fun. Good restaurants. Good bars. Always something going on. And twice a day Cowboys run a Herd of Longhorns from one end of the Stockyards to the other.
