This isn't exactly the hardest-hitting interview in the history of ever -- in fact, I only post DCVB boss Phillip Jones's brief Q&A (as in: one fawning and rambling question, one answer) conducted during last week's Professional Convention Management Association convention and just posted so I've got good reason to tack on the Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau's "When I'm Big" more official promo. We mentioned it a long while ago, but it has since made its way to the YouTube, where it's been all but ignored. Shame.
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.
