DALLAS - Any generous gesture Jerry Jones can do, Mark Cuban can do ... equally.

In the wake of the destructive tornadoes that created so much damage in DFW last week, Dallas Cowboys owner Jones announced he donating a $1 million gift to the Dallas Independent School District.

"It's about community.''
