PLANO, Texas -- This is a great place to raise children. Except when they die. The golden buckle of the Sun Belt, its subdivisions and business parks swelling with white-collar migrants, Plano is by almost every measure the apex of educated suburbia -- clean streets, big houses, 113 lighted ball fields.With just two or three murders annually, this Dallas-area boom town of nearly 200,000 is Texas' safest city -- and one of America's Top 10. The Children's Environmental Index calls it the nation's fourth most child-friendly community, based on socioeconomic data such as dropout rates and household incomes.
