Beating a Dead Horse

Tuesday's News-Press editorial again showed Travis Armstrong's personal vendetta against the Mayor. Yes -- the Slugger has had several cases of foot in mouth disease and I would not want to appear to be an apologist for that except to say that it's rather easy to be taken out of context with a reporter like Dawn Hobbes -- she's a good reporter but is always looking for the more sensational story.

I wonder when Armstrong is going to admit that Council Member Falcone has some culpability in her strained relationship with the Mayor -- it takes two to tango!

I found the Angry Poodle's account of the squabble between Blum and Falcone a little closer to reality. Here's my favorite quote from the article:

Next Marty took on the ever angry Travis Armstrong, the News-Press editorial writer who seems inclined to blame the City Council—and Blum in particular—for everything from flat feet to painful rectal itch.

Hmmm. Dawn Hobbs. Isn't that the reporter the Slugger tried to have fired from the paper for quoting her accurately in the Janeway case?
