Good morning, Dallas! It’s Monday, August 23.
Not all COVID-19 infections are created equal. What I found getting a “breakthrough” infection is that I’m not being treated like a governor — and you may have a different experience from anyone else, too.
Now today’s weather: Humid throughout the day. High: 96 Low: 77.
Here are the top stories today in Dallas:
- Dallas Cowboys: “Oh you want to talk fashion.” (Instagram)
