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

Over the weekend, Jan Hubbard found plenty of Chicago Cubs praying Mark Cuban will become the team's next owner -- unless I misunderstood first baseman Derrek Lee's pronouncement, "I hope he gets the team." John Cusack was a little more skeptical: "I think what he has to do is convince Chicago that he would never mess around with the fundamentals of Wrigley Field as far as changing it or do anything to mess with tradition. And I think if he can convince people of that, he will be a great owner." Then again, he doesn't seem to have remembered much about his hometown, so, really, grain of salt, Lloyd. On a separate but very related note, I discovered this Web site: Cuban and the Cubs, which had Merten singing "Bennie and the Jets," which I now can't get out of my head, thanks. --Robert Wilonsky

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.
