I lived in DFW from 1979 till just a few weeks ago. I do have to agree that there are some pretty severe looking stacks billowing some of the worst looking "pollutants" or unknown smoke in the air in Milothian. I have heard rumours of higher diseases or lung type illnesses in that area. I would be hesitant to live or work in that city, although I do have a friend that lives there with his child. All of DFW and all of the US has drug problems. Drug problems are a US or global...as an aside the US govornment fosters drug problems rather than alleviating or curing by the national policies and farcical "drug war". - David -----Original Message----- From: oracle-l-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:oracle-l-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Kevin Lange Sent: Wednesday, June 16, 2004 3:19 PM To: 'oracle-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxx' Subject: RE: Midlothian Texas Be careful going to Midlothian. 1) Much Dust in the air from all the Cement Plants in the area. 2) Used to have a big drug problem in their schools. 3) If you blink too many times you could miss the city. I used to drive thru it on my way to work in Dallas. -----Original Message----- From: Johan Muller [mailto:johan_sr@xxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wednesday, June 16, 2004 1:31 PM To: oracle-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: OT: Midlothian Texas Anybody on the list who perhaps know which companies run Oracle installations at Midlothian, TX?
