A Fort Worth-writing FrontBurnervian takes me to task for pointing out the local-interest winners at the Altweekly Awards and overlooking a fine human being:
I noticed in your preface to the list of AAN “winners of local interest,” you didn’t mention that Fort Worth Weekly‘s Betty Brink won a first place for short form news writing, beating out submissions by two New Times-owned newspapers–the Houston Press and Westword. Recall that New Times dumped Fort Worth Weekly a couple of years ago and sold the newspaper to former Dallas Observer guy Lee Newquist. A bit of poetic justice for the Weekly methinks, and perhaps of some “local interest.”
Always enjoy reading Front Line, er, FrontBurner.
