The Lights Are Out, But We're Still Home

To do our part to conserve energy as Dallas streaks toward 1980-level awfulness, we're going to cut the lights on the two Observer signs that adorn our Oak Lawn headquarters. So when your alarm clock is still on when you wake up tomorrow morning, you'll know who to thank. We will not, however, be unplugging our beer fridge. Energy experts believe that would make our beer less cold. And we can't have that. -- The Editors

It's about time an office building does this! Thank you for loving your community and the people in it . It just irks me there are rolling blackouts when people are dying from the heat. Now if all the buildings in Downtown Dallas would do this how much would it save?

Moreover,after having been unemployed for a few years, we have learned to turn the AC up to about 78! It's hot but we have gotten used to it. Also make sure to turn it up higher at night and use some fans to stay cool while sleeping!

My husband would buy a generator to keep his beer cold if it came down to that! The beer has to stay cold! Turn off the lights, even the television if necessary, but keep the beer cold. I am sure he would agree 100%.
