The Wolf of Wall Street is based on the true story of Jordan Belfort. The movie chronicles from his rise to a wealthy stockbroker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption, and a potty mouth based on the actors’ massive use of the “F” word.

In both life and death John F. Kennedy left an indelible social and political impact on America, particularly in media. He was the first president to allow presidential press conferences to be broadcast live and he and his wife Jacqueline Kennedy were both known for influencing fashion trends as well as being subjects of numerous photo spreads in popular magazines. This was new level of influence that politicians before the Kennedys had not experienced.
This Wednesday night in honor of the upcoming 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, legendary Dallas journalist Hugh Aynesworth offers us an even deeper insight into how John F. Kennedy affected media not only through his life but through his death as well. Aynesworth will introduce and moderate a panel discussion entitled “How the JFK Assassination Changed North Texas Media.” As a reporter for the Dallas Morning News Aynesworth covered the whirlwind of events that followed Kennedy’s assassination and his experience will give the audience fascinating insight into what media was like before his assassination, what it was like after and how this historical event is still affecting North Texas media today.

So earlier this week I was all hyped up about how Friday (today) was going to be the big day in which the Texas State Fair would be revealing the new Big Tex to the world. Well strike that because according to state fair officials high winds caused them to unveil the local icon a day earlier than expected. So here he is, all shiny and new and ready to greet you with a “howdy”.
He didn’t get quite the party everyone was hoping for but its good to finally have him back up front where he belongs.

It’s that time of year again people, Texas State Fair time! Yes the fried food, fair rides and entertainment is back to make us full and happy again. But this weekend doesn’t just mark the beginning of the 2013 Texas State Fair, it also marks the return of our beloved Big Tex! Since his untimely (but not ultimate) demise last October Texas State Fair officials have been working tirelessly to return Big Tex to his rightful place at the front of the fair, greeting visitors with a howdy and that endearingly creepy smile.
This Friday, September 27th, Big Tex will be reintroduced to the world and all will be right with the Texas State Fair as we stroll through the attractions munching on deep fried chocolate chip burritos (yes everyone that’s a new item on the State Fair food list, prepare yourself). Also don’t miss the Opening Day Parade going on at noon that day. Here you can enjoy drill teams, colorful floats and all types of parade stuff to get you into the fair going spirit.
