John Mayer -- Jessica Simpson's ex and, apparently, some kind of musician -- wants you to lay off Tony Romo's galpal. And, yes, I mean you. Why else would he lead off a blog item yesterday -- one titled, no less, "DON'T EX WITH TEXAS" -- with the salutation, "Dear Dallas and Surrounding Areas"? Apparently, we're all being too hard on poor Jess, who's returning the favor with more direct-to-video releases than Blockbuster.

Nonetheless, writes the Esquire columnist and brilliant Dave Chappelle sidekick: She loves Texas, so lay off. "So please don't try and take that away from her. (You probably wouldn't be able to, but it's less work for all involved.)" Also, with all due sincerity: "I just thought it would mean something coming from the guy who has the absolute least to gain from this." I now like John Mayer. Still, though, not his music. --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.
