Admit it, Carl Monday is your new hero. Cutthroat investigative journalism at its finest, right? (You know, it's really too bad we don't have cameras on us as we're reporting stories. We are so like that.) Well, Monday went back for more after Mike Cooper, famous for the "mono log" he gave at a Cleveland library, was sentenced. And the clip has got everything we could've asked for: Monday's wispy hair, a far-flung microphone, Cooper's bizarre behavior and, of course, violent and protective parents. OK, almost everything. The only thing lacking? A quote from the literate masturbator saying, "Without Carl Monday, this day would not have been possible."

Oh, and there's been an update in the Village Voice Media handbook: All reporters are to immediately trade tact for pencil-thin moustaches upon hiring. Thankfully, we've been grandfathered in. --Merritt Martin

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.
