Our very own Alice Laussade was just named Best Columnist by D Magazine, which is good because Alice had planned to do some very weird things had she been snubbed this year.

The cultural section of the glossy's annual Best of Big D issue names other arts and life bests, including the BBQ Snob for best blog (agree), Meyerson Symphony Center for best performing arts venue (agree), and the zoo for best place for family fun (no way; with apologies to the animals, our zoo is pretty lackluster.)

There's no word on any prize money, glory or other accolades Alice will receive in tandem with this recent recognition, but we are taking suggestions on where we should affix her red and white D sticker.

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.
