Poll: What One Word Best Describes Dallas?

You know, if you only got one word.

Of course, it’s ridiculous to think that Dallas — bustling and vibrant, full of multitudinous contradictions creating the very friction that so often ignites inventiveness — could possibly be summed up in a single word. But let’s try anyway.

We put the question to eight of the Dallas 40 who appear on our 40th anniversary September issue. See for yourself what they had to say in this video, and then cast your vote on which you think encapsulates our city best.

    I’m not sure influx is the word you are looking for.

    Yes, I think Mariel Street may have said “in flux,” but 1) since that’s not one word and 2) It means basically the same thing as Mike Modano’s answer, I decided to instead entertain the possibility that she in fact said “influx.”

    Judging by all the out-of-state license plates on our roads and new arrivals I think influx is the perfect word.

    “Connected,” is the word that comes to mind. Relationships matter everywhere (and Dallas is no exception). And with recent expansions in transportation and strengthening links between different communities, I think you’ll agree.

    Do you need an urgent spell to get your ex back, there is a great spiritualist who can help you, his name is Dr Brave!!

    An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my husband back to me.. My name is Natasha Johnson,i live in Florida,USA,and I’m happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn’t love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{[email protected]}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn’t call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website { http://enchantedscents.tripod.com/lovespell/},if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Dr Brave for bringing back my husband ,and brought great joy to my family once again. { [email protected] }, Thanks..
