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

Al Gore was out in Marin County, California, yesterday signing copies of his new book, The Assault on Reason and 1,001 Other Summertime Smoothie Recipes, and, of course, he was greeted by some 2,000 peeps all begging him to run, Al, run. Among the throngs, reports the Marin Independent Journal, was:

Roger Ponn, a software consultant from the Dallas/Fort Worth area, who maintains his own Web site urging Gore to run in 2008. Ponn flew into the Bay Area on Wednesday just to attend the event.

"I think he will change his mind," said Ponn, a native of Sri Lanka.

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.
