So the Rangers are seriously considering bringing back pitcher Kenny Rogers? Never -- I repeat, never -- say never. For the record, Larry Rodriguez says he’d be cool covering Rogers again. Me? Notsamuch...

The nation’s most feeble college-sports 1-2 punch lives right under our noses. SMU’s football team is 1-9 and playing with a lame duck coach. The basketball team, thanks to double-digit home losses to Southern and Alabama State -- yikes -- is off to its first 0-2 start since 1994. Pony. Down...

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.
