That's because it looks like Forbes was on to something last week after all. Friend of Unfair Park David Webb, keeper of The Rare Reporter, sends word that Out magazine's done compiled its list of "The 60 Greatest Gay Bars in the World," and the only local joint to make the list is the Round-Up Saloon on Cedar Springs Road, a Best of Dallas winner back in '06, matter of fact. Raves Out, "The bartenders are shirtless in this country gay bar and strangers will drag you onto the dance floor for shirtless line-dancing and two-stepping." Sounds very much like our staff meetings.

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.
