Tearing Up Tarrant County

Poking Fun At Suburbanites

In today's 'Something Positive' comic strip, author/artist Randy Milholland tears a strip off of the City of Euless. As a former resident of Tarrant County, TX from 1990 to 1998, I have to say he's right on target.

There are some parts of Tarrant that aren't too bad. Parts of Ft. Worth, Arlington, Mansfield, even Lake Worth and Southlake aren't too bad. OTOH, the trio of communities known as Hurst, Euless & Bedford Worst, Useless & Deadford are a sun-baked suburban hell. I hate to even drive through.

Fort Worth & Arlington ought to switch to an Imperial form of government, and start forcibly annexing all the little bedroom communities that litter Tarrant County, leaving the severed heads of the former City Councilmen mounted on pikes outside the city limits...
