LUFKIN DAILY NEWS DROPS DOWD:

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 1:04 am

LUFKIN DAILY NEWS DROPS DOWD: This is pretty humorous, I think. The local newspaper in Lufkin, Texas has dropped Maureen Dowd’s column, as some guy from that paper explains here. Apparently, Dowd violated one of the fundamental “tents” of the newspaper business. And the Lufkin Daily News is not going to respond to the violation of tents with the sort of “naval gazing” that they do over at the New York Times.

Moral: if you do any naval gazing, take a blanket, ’cause it gets cold at the shore. And remember to take the tents of the newspaper business with you, in case it rains.

Well, this guy’s heart is in the right place. Goofs and all, I’d read him over Dowd any day.
