I didn't get to see much of the Super Bowl yesterday -- the missus put me to work. Apparently, Tony Romo and I now have something in common; he didn't see much of the Big Game yesterday either, apparently. Only, my chores didn't include carrying around Jessica Simpson's mutt. Also, I had a much better headline for this "item" but wussed out -- free Walker, Texas Ranger Season 4 DVD boxed set for the Friend who guesses the discarded headline. --Robert Wilonsky

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.
