Cheap Bastard Alice Laussade Named Best Columnist By D. No Hunger Strike After All.

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.

Ironic that a mag that censors the word fuck gives a columnist who uses the word fuck in 9 out of 10 columns the best columnist award.  I fucking love you Alice.

The new comment setup blows chunks. Who's the genius who decided to do this?

Kudos to Alice. I agree with Twinwillow. This new blog ware is torture.

Being called the best of anything by D Magazine is like having the best smelling fart. No offense to Alice who I think is the bees knees.

 @ScottsMerkin Have you clicked on the "Voice" box above and registered?

 

I think the reason we have a new format now could be that the Dallas Observer is possibly affiliated with the same people that own the "Village Voice" in NYC.

 

Anybody else think the same?

 The only thing I find annoying with the new change is that you can't see how many people have commented.

Twinwillow, by "you've lost me," does that mean you aren't going to post on this site anymore??

 Well it's not where it usually is - on the snapshots of the articles, so you can see whether a new comment has been added.  You're forced to click into the article (that you've already read) to see if there are any new comments to read.  I

 @beda50 There should be a count at the top of the post--or at the top of your profile box?  It shows how many people are listening too, which means how many peoples following the conversation
