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

By now, you've no doubt seen Gary Griffith's anti-cheese ad; wow, really going out on a limb there, hunh, coming out against drugs. (Why "ironically called cheese," incidentally?) If you haven't seen the ad, which Griffith's peeps posted to YouTube this morning, here it is:

Silly, innit? But we have to admit, it's far better than what Max Wells' folks posted to YouTube on Monday: the mayoral wannabe filing his official candidacy paperwork with the City Secretary. I stopped paying attention at the words "sales tax."

So much for the power of YouTube. But it's funny to see what comes up when you type in the words "Ed Oakley." --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.
