I live in the DFW area, and it always amazes me when people say that the Dallas/Fort Worth/Arlington area is one of the last places they would ever
expect an attack to happen. I'm guessing they have never even thought about HOW much is here.
Shoot, really, there's so many things here. Even when you just look at the four major sports teams we have (the Mavericks, Stars, Cowboys, and
Rangers) and where they play (American Airlines Center, Cowboys Stadium, and Ameriquest Field), and how many people go to those games, that alone is
enough to worry about. Plus there's a Soccer team and a D-NBA team that play in Frisco.
Then the concerts at the American Airlines Center, Cowboys Stadium, Pizza Hut Park, and Superpages.com Center. The Fairgrounds, the DART Rail system,
Tarrant County Convention Center/Fort Worth Convention Center (I forget what it's called now), the major zoos and the museums, the insanely big
malls, all of the major schools/universities, Six Flags, Hurricane Harbor, and the main airport.
The Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is a biggie. That place is HUGE, and the security isn't exactly that great outside or in the parking
garages. Then add all of the hotels and things outside of the airport property (Grapevine Mills Mall, The Gaylord Texan, and Great Wolf Lodge).
And that's just D/FW/Arlington. There's more if you go out to Denton, Frisco, and Plano. Denton isn't that big, but it does have the University of
Plus there's the millions of people that live here. Many millions of people.
Honestly, I'm surprised we don't here about things like this more often.
