Whatever you say, dude

Whatever you say, dude Apparently, I made some "ignorant claims" (scroll down, his permalinks don't work) when I wrote about the NYT's recent Houston hit piece. The gentleman in question doesn't bother to specify which of my claims may have been made in ignorance, so I can't exactly reply to him.

He seems to think that we should just shrug it off when someone insults our city. I'm perfectly happy to do so when it's a comedian or an obscure publication saying silly things, but when it's written someplace that will affect a lot of people's perceptions of who I am and where I live, I don't think it's overreacting to get upset. Of course, I'm just an ignorant-claims-making kind of guy, so what do I know?
