Be sure to submit your questions for tonight's Trinity toll road debate twixt Mayor Tom and Angela Red -- you have till 5:30, or whenever Dr. Schutze heads over to the Cliff for tonight's can't-miss wingding. Because, sure 'nuff, Jim says he'll take a few of the good ones and submit them to the panelists pre-show -- or, perhaps, ask them himself during the Q&A portion of the debate. We know you'd like to be there yourself, but you'll be home watching Mark Cuban make his balletic bow on Dancing with the Stars. --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.
