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

I like the way the Associated Press leads its story about Jerry Jones' latest way to pay for his billion-dollar-plus Jerryworld in Arlington: "Fans of the Dallas Cowboys who might not be able to get tickets to the team's new stadium in Arlington can leave their mark -- underfoot." In other words, folks who can afford ducats in the new joint will step on those who can't. Me, I think the so-called "pavers" -- which range from $150 to $375 -- look more than a little like tombstones, the way they're displayed on the Cowboys' Web site. Trying to come up with a slogan -- I'm thinking Unfair Park contest. Winner gets a sponsored brick. --Robert Wilonsky

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.
