Something to listen for in about 60 minutes courtesy National Public Radio's Day to Day: a segment titled "Living the California Dream in Texas." Which is about what, exactly?
We asked listeners to tell us about how their California Dreams have changed in the rough economy. Listener Brian Keller wrote in to tell us about the prestigious job he landed right out of grad school. But the salary wasn't keeping up with the cost of living, so now he's moving to Dallas, Texas. Keller tells Madeleine Brand how he's keeping his California Dream alive.
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.
