It only took, what, a week? But here, at long last, is GOP pollster Frank Luntz's presentation to the Dallas City Council, given last week during its retreat at the Arboretum. Mayor Mike's chief of staff, Paula Blackmon, just sent it along, complete with the tiny-type data tables I didn't attach (unless you really want to sort through the fine print).
Titled The Dreams of Dallas, it's 30 pages of charts and graphs culled from interviews with a whopping 400 Dallasites -- though, keep in mind there's that 4.7 percent margin of error. It's on the other side. Might as well read it -- only cost you $15,000.

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.
