A couple of months, Schutze was all jacked up because someone on his street got a ticket for being parked the wrong way on a two-way street. Don't look now, but seems the city's done figured out that's an awful easy way to make $45 a pop during these lean times: I've received several missives in recent days from Friends of Unfair Park who've been hit with that very same wrong-way citation, including one from a neighbor on a tiny side street who received her love letter from the city just last week after years of breakin' the law, breakin' the law in front of her house.

Oh. And I probably should mention Schutze got tagged with a wrong-way ticket Saturday night. You, right there. Yes, you. Stop laughing.

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.
