Here is an interesting story about citizens of Fort Worth criticizing Chesapeake for their tactics and pursuance of urban gas drilling. I would sugest listening to it rather than reading it.

Did anyone know Tommy Lee Jones was on their payroll??

Yeah my parents live down there and say Tommy Lee commercials are running all the time down there.

And NPR didn't get their facts straight when the called Chesapeake the largest player in the Barnett.

Oh no, not Fort Worth! My favorite city besides Oklahoma City.

I use to live in the Green Oaks Area (Sappington Rd) not far from the Ridgemar Mall and the Henderson Avenue Bridge leading into White Settlement.

If Bush would get sun burned enough; he wouldn't go into there (WS).

I had to move back to OKC, Dallas (Greedytown) is spilling over into that beautiful city (Cowtown/Funkytown)..

I love Fort Worth, if you ever decide top move to Texas, Fort Worth is it!

I've deleted all the posts that have nothing to do with this topic and were spiraling down a name-calling political path.

Please discuss politics on the politics board and keep it respectful.
