Readers\' comments

Dallas is a pretty cool place, its not really what most people think it is, like most areas in Texas with the ranches and cowboys riding on horses everywhere, you do see horses and cowboys but most of Dallas is city with buildings and lights everywhere. The weather is kind of crazy, but if you know anything about Texas, you would know that the weather is crazy. On Christmas morning the weather could be warm then later on ts snowing outside, that\'s exactly what happened on Christmas last year, but it was pretty cool though. You should come visit sometime.
