Are Oak Cliff native Edie Brickell and her husband, Paul Simon, house hunting in Oak Cliff?

That’s what Simon implied during his performance at the Winspear Opera House Sunday night, according to the Dallas Morning News.

“We decided we are going to look for a house in Texas. Well, one of us decided … We think Oak Cliff!”

According to the newspaper, he then said, “Well, it’s not going to be Highland Park.”

Oh, snap. Highland Park is dead. Long live Oak Cliff.
