Real Estate and Other, Net [Abstract]  
Other Income and Other Expense Disclosure [Text Block] Real Estate and Other, Net
 
Real estate and other primarily includes net gains from the sale of facilities and equipment that are no longer used in operations, asset impairments, accruals for certain litigation and other non-operating charges and credits. Prior to 2019, real estate and other also consisted of ongoing income from our real estate subsidiaries. During the first quarter of 2014, we formed a joint venture to develop property adjacent to our home office facility in Plano, Texas (Home Office Land Joint Venture) in which we contributed approximately 220 acres of property. The joint venture was formed to develop the contributed property and our proportional share of the joint venture's activities is recorded in Real estate and other, net. During the third quarter of 2018, we sold our interest to the other partner and are no longer a member of the joint venture.
