But that’s a question Kneese and DeMers aim to clear up. If anyone has a chance of digging to the bottom to the Big D and Bayou City brawl, it’s these folks. They are, after all, self-styled experts on the subject. While it may be hard to imagine someone claiming dual citizenship in the Big D and the Bayou City, that’s exactly what Kneese, who has family in both cities, does. She considers herself a resident of not only Houston but Dallas, and she teamed up with two more rival-metro experts, journalists DeMers and Lynn Ashby, to create Bragging Rights.
The book is full of opinions from bigwigs on both ends of that I-45 corridor, on what drives their town’s pride. And while the Dallas top dogs may not be able to shake your H‑Town pride, Kneese and DeMers may be able to give just a bit more insight into what makes those irksome Dallasites tick.
