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?
I'm working, but not enough, and am seeking new employment. I pay rent weekly, am constantly a week or two behind, and my landlord has informed my that I need to fix this pronto or (understandably) move out. I'm looking for suggestions for how to financially catch up and possibly get my head above water and quickly. [more inside]
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.

Through a string of bad luck (losing my job, losing my health insurance, bit of a breakdown at the start of the summer), I'm looking at being homeless in a couple of days. There aren't many options out there for a single male. This is a last ditch effort to find resources in my area other than shelters. [more inside]
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]

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]

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?

Help me pack in a nice 3 day weekend in DFW with my wife. I've got Rangers tickets for Sunday's game 5/29. I think I want to stay at a Hilton with a nice pool situation.
