Quick is quicker than the competition

They're fast on the draw in Dallas. The Dallas Morning News isn't going to get stampeded by a herd from a ... oh, help me, I've run out of cowboy puns ... rival newspaper company. Anyway, when the folks at Belo, the DMN's owner, heard that American Consolidated Media was going to launch a free dailiy called A.M. Journal Express. (Why the word "Dallas" isn't in the title, we don't know!) Anyway, the Journal Express plans to launch in two days. What a battle this is going to be! Our guess is that Dallas, where most people commute to their jobs in cars, will be a tough nut to crack for any free daily. You can't hand them out at subway stations like they do in Europe.
