Responding to the response

Amazing. I hope you don’t actually take yourself seriously, John. “Ethnic Pride”? It couldn’t possibly be that he’s a small businessman who will look out for the interests of other small businessmen, could it? In case you’ve somehow missed them, there are Leal signs in front of many non-mexican restaurants like Olive Garden, Chick-fil-a and Kabuki, just to name a few. Please only write something if it is worth reading. Your trashy blog posts make me sick.

The above statement came from someone who objected — obviously — to an earlier blog posting.

I’ll admit right here that I have missed seeing the Texas House District 87 campaign signs in front of the eating establishments noted in the respondent’s message. My intent merely was to comment on what I had physically seen in my travels around Amarillo.

Perhaps I don’t get out enough and haven’t visited every single corner of our city, which comprises more than 100 square miles, over the past several weeks. We’re kind of spread out, right?

So, most of the individual’s complaint about my blog post is noted with respect.

I do object to one thing the individual wrote. The writer calls the posts “trashy.” I presume this person means all of them. I think some of them, at least, are rather clever. But that’s just me, I guess, tooting my own horn.

  1. I'm proud of you for admitting your mistake- even though I have no idea how you could possibly only see the signs at Mexican restaurants and miss all of the others. Ethnic tunnel vision, perhaps?

    In all seriousness, though, I do applaud you for recognizing your mistake. Not all of your blog posts are trashy- just the ridiculously politically biased ones. Cheers.

  2. You don't get out of your well-traveled Randall-to-downtown route much. That much was obvious when you praised the city for doing a good job of cleaning the streets after the recent blizzard. Nevertheless, considering that mediocre Tex-Mex restaurants make up about 99% of the “small business” in this city, I can see where your sample got skewed on this one.

  3. The right-wingers get bent out of shape every time you say something nice about a lefty. Obviously, they are brain washed into behaving like sheep.
    Keep up the good work. You are appreciated.
