Uh. Yeah. Well. Hunh. Turns out that during our technical transition yesterday, we managed to lose some reader comments -- not that many, something like a couple hundred out of several thousand. Many of them were attached to Bible Girl items; apparently, the Lord does move in mysterious ways, because we're not sure what caused the problem, but we are working to fix it pronto. Oh, and turns out our new, apparently quite rigorous spam filter may also be keeping some of your new comments from reaching the moderation page. Working on that too. That said, most everything else seems to be up and running. If you have any suggestions or notice any other glitches, feel free to toss 'em up here. We'll keep fine-tuning throughout the day.

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.
