(Above: The Dallas skyline. Photo courtesy: Dallas City News)While we prefer to think of Houston as the most important city in Texas, we are aware that other cities exist here. In fact, we’re thrilled to see Dallas, San Antonio, Austin and other communities succeed because their success bodes well for the entire state.

This week, we engage in a little “city exchange” with some of the other major communities in Texas, as we talk with reporters/columnists from each town about the major developments in their communities – both good and bad – and consider what lessons Greater Houston might learn from them.

On Monday, we discussed what lessons could be learned from San Antonio. Today, we continue our series with a conversation about developments in — and lessons learned from — Dallas.

Joining us for this conversation are Krystina Martinez, a producer for KERA News, and Ken Hoffman, columnist for CultureMap Houston.
