Yesterday this editorial ran in the Dallas Morning News:
Editorial: Dallas must learn from others before gas production arrives
Today their sister paper the Denton Record Chronicle rolled out day one of a five day series in nine parts on “Citizens of the Shale.’ Both papers are owned by Belo. They often run stories concurrently. Why didn’t the DMN run Citizens of the Shale concurrently?
Was the editorial about learning from our mistakes just lip service? There is no better way to learn from our mistakes than to let your readers read our heart wrenching stories. Could it be that Dallas, like the other areas of the shale as been designated as a sacrifice zone? Could it be that the DMN thinks this reporting is not a priority?
Hey Dallas! You’re next.

It's past time that the Dallas News put one of their stellar investigative reporters on the story about what's already in progress in Dallas County. It does occur to me that they may not have one.
Do read much in general about toxic chemical and radioactivity in the Dallas Morning News-about the Naval AIr Station, MOuntain Creek Lake, old industrial sites along the Trinity R, Lone Star Cement, Grace Corp, the Koch brothers plants? NO. We can always hope and pray a story will be forthcoming.
(PCBs in the Trinity has been examined, however.)
Dallas is a city with ruined groundwater, and our surface water is quietly in the process of being contaminated.
