Good morning. It's Thursday, September 12th. I’m Alex Brodie, and here are the top stories from The Dallas Morning News. Today will be partly sunny and very warm with a high of 95 and a low of 75. Tonight will be mainly clear. Our top story is: T. Boone Pickens, legendary energy executive, philanthropist, ardent Oklahoma State University supporter, and one of America's most famous entrepreneurs, died peacefully yesterday of natural causes at his home in Dallas. He was 91.
