Spoiler alert: Last night, Disney Street-ers Jon and Anna Usry and their two kids opened the doors of their house to World News with Diane Sawyer's David Muir, who promptly backed up the moving truck and emptied their house of everything not made in America.

That, after all, is the title of Sawyer's weeklong series, which "will take a closer look at American manufacturing and the impact it has on the economy." The look-see kicked off last night with a peek into the Usrys' Northwest Dallas home as it was invaded, photographed from floor to ceiling and loaded into a Mayflower. Tonight, ABC promises to fill their house with only M'rkin-made stuff -- which, I guess, means they'll have to do without a television. Oh, the irony.

Last night's kick-off report is after the jump.

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.
