Freedom Isn't Free

On the first anniversary of 9/11, we mourned the tragedy. On the second, we wrote about Bush callously invoking the victims and notions of "freedom" to create new victims in a pointless war, and laws that represented anything but freedom. Now that we're all 9/11-ed out, we don't mark the occasion -- but we could use some exercise. Oh look, a "Freedom Run" 5K run and one-mile walk--gotta work off those "freedom fries" somehow. Registration is $15 to $25, with proceeds benefiting the Assist The Officer Foundation; the race begins 5 p.m. Thursday at Dallas City Hall Plaza. Call 214-220-7420 or visit

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
