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

This comes to us courtesy The Dallas Morning News' Bold Types blog, and it was written, of course, by Jim Schutze's new favorite pejorative, Steve Blow:

I love it. A letter to the editor in this week's Dallas Observer labels me as "one scary guy."

When I tried to give the letter a particularly menacing public reading in the newsroom awhile ago, the whole place erupted into laughter when I reached the "scary" line.

"Nervous laughter," one of my quaking colleagues assured me.

By the way, because all the facts were on my side, the lawsuit she mentions was thrown out on summary judgment.

Steve, if you could just do us one small favor: Could you give me a call and then read the thing again into my tape recorder so we can put it up on Unfair Park? Because that would make this whole thing worthwhile. K? Thanks. You got the number, right? --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.
