At the risk of creating a Cat 5 media self-referencing vortex, this is a blog post about a blog post in response to a letter commenting on a column. Responding to this James Ragland column, Dallas Progress blogger Michael Davis wrote this letter to the editor. (Third one down). Don’t necessarily agree, but it’s above the belt. Then it got weird. This letter roused Ragland from his weekend slumber at his Paris, Texas abode, prompting a nigh unprecedented Sunday blogging wherein he felt it necessary not only to trot out his credentials and resume, he got downright snippy. Did anyone question his credentials? No? Very strange. He says the word “I” as often as Bill Clinton giving a Hillary stump speech. He then complains about cheap shots and then makes several of his own at Davis. And of course, no Internet insult can go unanswered, and so it goes.
