Missing Dallas has been running a series called 50 Things I Miss About Dallas. A recent entry begins:

There was this bookstore on MLK, I think next to Elaine’s Kitchen, with a heavy Nation of Islam focus. I drove out one afternoon, walked in, browsed awkwardly, then turned to the two Nation guys sitting at a squat table in the middle of the store, benignly ignoring me like priests ignore tourists at Notre Dame. I said, “Hey, so this is kind of random, but I want to write for magazines, and I don’t have any writing clips. I was wondering if maybe we could sit around and bullshit for a while, and then I could write about it.”
