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

Occasional Dallas Observer photographer Allison V. Smith and the namesake of the Barry Whistler Gallery on Canton Street were hitched Saturday evening at Allison's family vacationland in Maine. Just read all about it in The New York Times, which has a lovely photo of the couple as well as a few familial details. (In case you didn't know, yes, she's Mr. Stanley's granddaughter.) All I have handy is this photo I took last year of Allison with our pediatrician, the great Dr. Robert Kramer, and some guy named Quincy Jones. Mazel tov to the happy couple, for whom we purchased this lovely lamp.

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.
