    Really Stoked, Ready for Tomorrow's Very Weird JFK Ritual

    Getting pretty stoked, have to admit it, pretty revved up for the 50th Kennedy Assassination Celebration downtown tomorrow. Lots more calls coming in from the curious. Friend called from New Jersey asking if there will be a parade. Had to tell him no, sadly. They were afraid they wouldn't be able to ... More >>

    A Note from Our Managing Editor Regarding the Use of "Metroplex" and Other Terms of Regional Endearment

    Occasionally our long-time managing editor, Patrick Williams, sends emails to the staff lauding their prose, gently encouraging them, and otherwise helping them along in their journeys as reporters, writers and, well, people. Today was one of those days. I share this with you because you, as reader ... More >>

    Don't Stop Renewable Energy Subsidies. Just Make Them Better.

    Every week, managing editor Patrick Williams disappears into his office and reemerges a cranky, nicotine-addicted, third-person-referring superhero we like to call Buzz. OK, everybody relax and just breathe easy (though not too deeply). That whole global-warming, energy-supply, sooty-air thing is t ... More >>

    The Dallas Morning News Keeps Promising More and Keeps Delivering More Boredom

    Every week, managing editor Patrick Williams disappears into his office and reemerges a cranky, nicotine-addicted, third-person-referring superhero we like to call Buzz. This week, Buzz has a familiar villain in his sights. Oh, man, Buzz is so depissed©. No, that's not a typo. It's our own neologi ... More >>

    Carter High, Once a State Champ, Turns to An Old Friend to Help Win Back the Neighborhood

    Patrick Williams, Class of '91, was a running back on Carter's state-title team.​Football coaches, even the high school kind, can be angry men. This is especially true early in the season, when their lives, from their standpoint anyway, are just one big shit salad of false starts and bad reads ... More >>

    Sampling Samuel Adams Utopias With Fellow Beer Bloggers, Taco Trailblazers, Unfair Parkers and Buzz

    Patrick Michels‚ÄčI thought I was lucky back in 2009 when The Boston Beer Company sent a sample-sized bottle of the remarkable but ruinously expensive Samuel Adams Utopias. But in drumming up pub for the 2011 release, the company outdid itself and sent a full 24-ounce decanter, along with a fine Rie ... More >>

    Hello, Suckers

    Some readers of Unfair Park's sister in print may find something odd in their paper this week. We won't be cute about it: It's a fucking chain letter soliciting bucks from chumps--specifically female chumps. Seriously. We should know all about chumps here this week: The one-page insert made it into ... More >>

    We Said a Bad Word

    So far, we've received more than 75 letters from would-be proofreaders "correcting" Richie Whitt's lead on his sports column this week. For the record, "two shits passing in the night" was not a typo. It was a joke or--as one letter writer corrected me when I 'splained--an attempted joke. So far, t ... More >>

    Oh No, Ne-Yo

    This is what happens when you're between music editors: The Ne-Yo show our dead-tree edition said was happening next week at Smirnoff Centre ain't happening. Was canceled a while ago, in fact.

    You've tried the personals; you've tried MySpace; you've tried blind dates and virtually everything else to find a mate--or a least someone worth a second date. What, oh what, is a girl to do in Dallas' dating desert? No. Not that. Sheesh. Get your mind out of the gutter and onto a higher plane. Th ... More >>
