You could just read about T. Boone Pickens' plan to ween U.S. off foreign oil, yawn, or you can hear the man hisself in a 10-minute video made for his Web site, where the Dallas billionaire and Swift Boat financier does his best H. Ross Perot and takes to the drawing board to break like the wind (and natural gas and so forth).

Pickens' plan also got him on CNBC this morning, where he co-hosted Squawk Box and proved himself a most capable television personality. Almost Fran Tarkenton That's Incredible! good.

Speaking of high gas prices, this morning I came across Dallas Gas Prices, which I'm sure you're all aware of. But if not, they are looking for spotters ... --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.
