In case you're traveling through Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport tomorrow, be warned: Terminal B -- specifically, gate B-35 -- will be more than a little cram-packed full of media types and assorted gawkers around the 4 o'clock hour. That's because Nastia Liukin -- who, I believe, is some kind of gymnast or something? -- is going to be holding a press conference upon her return from Beijing, during which she'll be joined by father and trainer Valeri, mama Anna and agent Evan Morgenstein, who, far as I am concerned, is the estranged son of Rhoda. --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.
