Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Back to that story about John Reed, the first-class passenger on that Sacramento-to-Dallas American Airlines flight earlier this month who asked a flight attendant for a glass of orange juice and wound up with a federal warning for bad behavior instead. A Friend of Unfair Park sends along Reed's appearance on FOX News Monday, where he was joined by Dallas consultant Dave Koss, whose post about the incident garner all this attention in the first place. This is for those who doubted Koss's story, since, by his own admission, it was recounted to him by his wife and others after he woke from a mid-air nap.

Turns out, Consumerist also has the video -- along with myriad other links to items about the incident. Lookie there, someone's even written a song about it.

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.
