Dallas in one day

Starting this Saturday I will be in Dallas for a conference for five days. Most of Sunday will be free. What are some nice things to do to explore a bit of the city in one day? I love just walking around a new-to-me city, what would be a good area to do that, and how do I get there? I will be staying near East Transfer Center. Any advice on cheapish breakfast options around there are also appreciated.

Phoenix vs. Dallas

I am flying American Airlines from New York to Grand Junction, CO this July. Is it better to transfer in Phoenix or Dallas (DFW)? My primary concern is avoiding delays/cancellations, weather-related or otherwise. [more inside]

Need medical air transport from the Phoenix area to Dallas area

(Asking for a friend) We're trying to find a service that will fly my dad from the Phoenix area to the Dallas area, with a medical attendant. Uncertain of an exact diagnosis yet, but it's either complications from stage IV lung cancer or congestive heart failure. Heart and respiratory monitoring would be necessary, although he does have a DNR. (Don't know what difference that makes.) He is currently hospitalized but may be released in the next couple days. We need to find a way to get him home without the 2-1/2 day drive, and he likely cannot fly commercial. [more inside]

Places to stay/visit between the city centers of Dallas and Fort Worth

I'm traveling to Dallas/ Fort Worth with a friend and a six month old for five days this fall. Any recommendations for interesting or even typical places (more like great man-made lakes rather than great nature trails) to stay in or explore that are located between Dallas and Forth Worth but well outside the city centers?

Calling all residents of Dallas County

It's possible that, sometime in the next five years, we may have to leave Jacksonville, FL for Mrs. Mosley's career. I had always thought that if I did move out of my hometown of 41 years, it would be (a) somewhere somewhat cooler and (b) somewhere somewhat more liberal. Dallas doesn't strike me as either of those. Can someone who lives there give me their impression of the city?

Dallas plants/Bushes or flowers.

I just bought a new home in Dallas Tx. In our kitchen right where the kitchen table is we have a big window that looks out to our neighbors house where there is a air conditioner unit. Im looking for a relatively inexpensive bush/plant/flower to put there that will grow and live all year round that will add a more pleasant view than an AC unit. Suggestions? House faces North/ South. Also looking for the option that requires the least maintenance.

Recs for a Dallas psychiatrist and a G.P. who take Cigna insurance?

Depressive here. If you know of a Dallas psychiatrist that you have heard good things about who takes Cigna, I sure would appreciate their name. I could also use the name of a good general practitioner that takes Cigna, but this is secondary to my main concern of finding the psychiatrist. Thanks for any suggestions. [more inside]

Best Dallas thrift/second hand clothing stores

Please recommend me a psychiatrist and therapist in the Dallas area who 'specialize' in anxiety/dysthymic disorders.

Please recommend me a psychiatrist and therapist in the Dallas area who 'specialize' in anxiety/dysthymic disorders. I don't have severe anxiety to the point where I'm a hermit or anything. I like to think of my self as a very functional social phobic. But the anxiety is still there enough to rear its ugly head. For example, I'm finding it increasingly difficult to connect with people as I get older. I've lived in Texas my entire life and all my best friends moved away after college. I haven't been able to develop friendships that are as strong as the ones I had in high school and college. [more inside]

JFK assassination as premise for war with Soviets?

Watching a JFK assassination documentary on cable has gotten me thinking. Given the extreme state of the Cold War in 1963 and Lee Harvey Oswald having lived in the Soviet Union and being connected to Communism, was there any kneejerk reaction among the American public/political hawks calling for direct retribution against the Soviet Union? Or efforts to sell the assassination to the public as a reason to do so. How did that national tragedy differ from/align with 9/11 in that respect?
