What You're Missed When Rudy Giuliani Came to Town Last September

Fox News would like us to suppress our use of this photo of Rudy G. at Wild About Harry's. But Judith Reagan said it was OK.

Courtesy Damon Frazier of Plano-based Frazier Photography & Video, we've been invited to the September 8 Rudy Giuliani fund-raising shindig at Lombardo Custom Apparel on North Dallas Parkway. The video's long, but what a spectacle: Jay Lombardo's breathless intro of "the next best-dressed man in Washington, D.C.," Mayor Tom standing on the podium with arms folded, a big band serenading Roger Ailes' best friend with "New York, New York," a blessing from St. Joseph Catholic Church Monsignor Don Fischer and Rudy talking about the Texas Rangers and "the terrorist war against the United States" (which, far as I know, are not related in any way). And is it me, or does Lombardo refer to Mayor Tom as "Tom Lepperts," twice? --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.
