Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

There are a lot of things you can rely on the Wall Street Journal for, world news, stock market reports, political news and any kind of news with a liberal bend your little bleeding heart could desire. But, one thing they may want to stay away from is studying dance moves.

A few weeks ago the online portion of the the daily decided it would be a good idea on how The Dougie has taken over professional sports. Everyone from the New York Jets Braylon Edwards' to Washington Wizards latest hope to bring them out of last place, John Wall, have been seen doing The Dougie. Hell, even ESPN radio's Mike & Mike have talked about it a couple of times on their show.

However, the paper that "lives in the know" didn't seem to know The Dougie has been around for a few years now and originated in Dallas... not from the Cali Swag District. They gave a small mention in the article that the dance originated from the D-Town Boogie... which is kinda close, but, not really.

You're letting someone steal our swag and it's just not cool. Give the D-Town their propers for something they came up with.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
