Fort Worth's Birthday

Bud Kennedy's S-T column seems appropriate here, rather than in the "Image of Fort Worth" thread, because he delves a bit into Fort Worth's history, albeit along the theme, "Where the West Begins." I enjoyed reading his article. I suppose Abilene has a more cactus-and-sagebrush environment than does Fort Worth, but I never heard anyone pin the label "Where the West Begins" on Abilene (then, again, George Hamilton IV thought Abilene was the prettiest town he'd ever seen back in 1963, and no one else has sung any songs about Fort Worth, that I know of).
