A few days ago Erik Clapp, the Fort Worth-based filmmaker who maintains the Bobbie Wygant Archive, sent me the short-short you see on the other side: "Dirk Will Destroy Your Heart."

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.
