Dim Bulbs

So I haven't seen it myself, but I've been told the only quote the news ran of my interview about the downtown Dallas lights was, "that we should be competing with Paris not Oklahoma City," which out of context makes little to no sense. I also added that I wasn't an expert on lighting technology, but I was there to point out the need to raise the dialogue about what actually makes for a great city. Here is where I would like to point out that Paris got its name "City of Light," not for actual incandescence, but rather the Enlightenment.

But that won't stop people from showing a picture of Paris somehow proving their point. And 1 plus 1 equals 36. The true nature of a city is invisable.
