Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

The editorial writers at

The Dallas Morning News

usually spend their time frothing at the mouth about the downfall of civilization being brought about by radical groups like Democrats.

Now they have taken up a new cause.

Inspired our Robb Walsh's story on the sad state of Texas microbreweries, the News editorialists have demanded change.

"It's time for Austin to put the interests of Texas beer drinkers, not Texas beer distributors, first. It's time to free beer in Texas," they thundered.

Maybe it's not as bold a stand as the time the News allowed the famous "Welcome Mr. Kennedy to Dallas" ad to run on November 22, 1963, but it's a start.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, 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 Houston with no paywalls.
