March 25, 2011 – On local history.

Sam I am, indeed.

When I moved to Seattle – oh, so many years ago…I made an effort to bone up on the region’s history. Which was great…because Seattle was founded by a bunch of shysters, hooligans, and thieves. Good reading.

I need to do the same for my (somewhat) new home town of Dallas. But I want to read the unadulterated, “scary” history — the one not written by PR folks and people promoting things – books written by people who appreciate the honest, somewhat “scary” truth behind our nation’s history.

The above book doesn’t really qualify — so off to the RID pile it goes.

Any suggestions from Dallas residents about historical knowledge are appreciated.

    Check out the Old Red museum downtown. Lots of actual history. Even admits Dallas was founded by a crazy man and sustained by zealous business men. Good times!
