Jim Schutze took issue yesterday with a little ditty we ran in the January edition of the “print product.” We had a look at where the media types live who influenced the Trinity debate. One address we didn’t include: that of our boss, Wick Allison. Jim said that wasn’t cricket, only he put it this way:
I might even have argued in a story meeting that a dot over Allison’s house on Versaille would have been the most interesting dot on the map — sparking, perhaps, the whole question of why a bunch of rich carpetbaggers who are too good to live in the city think they should be able to run the city. I pose that question academically and as a dispassionate observer, not as an expression of any personal bias.
But leaving him out truly sucks. Even [James] Ragland, who voluntarily lives in Paris, Texas, could make a legitimate beef out of this. You can’t make fun of everybody else in town and then conspicuously cover up your own boss without looking like a big fat wing-flapping pigeon-toed awp-awp-awp CHICKEN!
Schutze has a point. We should have included a dot on the map for Wick. But the reason we left it off wasn’t because we were trying to hide his Highland Park address. It was because including Wick on the map would have meant putting two dots on it for him. While Wick’s legal residence is in HP (which prevents him from voting in Dallas elections), he actually lives in Uptown.
Here’s an updated map. The stars represent Wick.
