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

Every time I drive by Taylor Publishing's corporate offices and printing facility on Mockingbird, I'm reminded of the countless trips I had to make there when I was editing the Thomas Jefferson High School yearbook, The Document, in the mid-1980s. Some kids at a Pennsylvania high school will never have fond memories of Taylor -- waiting for pages, hoping the cutlines were in the right place, praying the photos were in focus. Nope, all they'll remember is the time, thanks to Taylor, that Max Zupanovic wound up in the yearbook as "Max Supernova," Kathy Carbaugh turned into "Kathy Airbag," and Alessandra Ippolito had her name changed to "Alexandria Impolite." At least the latter had a good attitude about the snafu: "It was kind of funny," notes the polite, ah, Impolite, "but kind of rude at the same time." --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.
