Just a quick note to John Wiley Price and Judge Thomas Jones, because, gentlemen, I'd really like to loan you my copy of the greatest movie ever to star Maximilian Schell, Ernest Borgnine, Anthony Perkins, Robert Forster and Yvette Mimieux. It was awesome when I was 11; I think you'll still dig it, though. Because something tells me you might have missed it way back when -- well, that and science. Jump for the trailer to a 1979 classic, at the very least. 'Cause that is how I roll. Just stay away from Lindsay Lohan, for God's sakes. And the rest of the universe. --Robert Wilonsky

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.
