Just returned from a long night of trick-or-treating to find the Rangers down by two and this picture in my in-box, courtesy the friend of a friend who works for MLB Advanced Media in NYC. That, of course, is 7-year-old Liam Roybal of Keller with The Real Ron Washington in a dugout pic taken, clearly, shortly before October 31 had taken a scary turn thanks to Aubrey Huff's two-run dinger. Fire Wade. Love Wash.
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.
