Famous quotes containing the word dallas:

    In its artless cruelty, Dallas is superior to any “intelligent” critique that can be made of it. That is why intellectual snobbery meets its match here.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    A sceptic finds Dallas absurd. A cynic thinks the public doesn’t.
    Clive James (b. 1939)

    If a foreign country doesn’t look like a middle-class suburb of Dallas or Detroit, then obviously the natives must be dangerous as well as badly dressed.
    Lewis H. Lapham (b. 1935)
