After we watched the county commissioner's temper tantrum yesterday (again and again and again), Patrick "Buzz" Willliams declared it awfully "bush league." We talked about how it was like one of those council meetings you see excerpted on newscasts across the country during which the anchor stares at the Teleprompter while snickering at the shenanigans. Like, oh, this from Hoboken. Or, from Detroit, this. Or, from Duncanville earlier this year, this. So, ya know, thanks, WNCT-Channel 9 in Greenville, North Carolina.
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.
