Still haven't seen a copy of A.H. Belo's Briefing, the single-section freebie being chucked on the lawns of the 75-thou-and-up crowd not currently taking The Dallas Morning News, luckies. Alas, all I've seen is the online media kit, which describes the ad supplement thusly: "Briefing delivers concise and informative news, sports and entertainment, along with regular sections like Your Money, Your Day and Your Life in a four-color, easy-to-read engaging broadsheet format." Sounds fun. Only, as the great Jeff Siegel points out, don't expect to receive your Briefing if'n you live south of the Trinity River. Because, from the looks of this map, A.H. Belo don't want none of your business, so, right, thanks for playing. --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.
