Several viewing options this morning. Could go with the three-part extravaganza, in which some dude hassles a Dallas police officer who's stopped him for reckless driving somewhere on Northwest Highway. (Here's parts one, two and three -- kind of like Star Wars.) Or we could go with the San Diego-based motivation speaker who stripped down to his superhero Spandex in front of a disbelieving North Dallas Chamber of Commerce. Or maybe this just-posted interview with Dirk Nowitzki, conducted entirely in German.
Or perhaps some oddly calming video taken of the Trinity River from a DART train at 7:55 a.m. yesterday. Maybe this guided tour of the Dallas Stars' new plane? A local breakdancer spinning on his head for an entire minute? You know what -- you decide. I've already seen 'em all. --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.
