I must point out: In my column this week, I reveal that one of my personal goals for 2008 is a massive flood in the Park Cities. Within 24 hours of my column hitting the streets, flood-clogged sewers in the Park Cities begin burbling poo-poo into the streets.
Hear this rumble beneath you, Philistines, and be very afraid. --Jim Schutze
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.
