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

Dallas-based Greyhound Lines isn't having a very good morning, following news that last night, on a bus traveling from Edmonton to Winnipeg, one passenger attacked another in front of some 36 fellow travelers. And it was a particularly gruesome incident: Notes The Windsor Star this morning, the attacker "reportedly stabbed another man sleeping next to him, eventually decapitating him and waving the man's severed head." Notes Greyhound spokesman Eric Wesley in this follow-up: "the tragedy ... was an 'isolated incident' and inter-city bus travel is statistically the safest form of travel available." And I thought American Airlines' Tim Wagner was going to have a long day. --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.

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.
