Convention Hotel Backers Busted by Trey Garrison

Trey dug up some good stuff in fact checking the anti-hotel camp’s press release that went out today. A woman quoted in the release complains about getting harassed by petition signature gatherers. But the woman has worked for Tom Leppert. Tsk, tsk.

    Tim –

    Where does the editorial staff and publisher stand on the hotel (“for” or “against”) as of today?

    And – just curious – what was the editors’ stand on the Trinity Toll Road? I was never clear… or I probably missed it.

    One cannot help but swoon at this, the very best of Dallas investigative journalism. And the answer to Bebe’s straightforward question

    “Tim -Where does the editorial staff and publisher stand on the hotel (”for” or “against”) as of today?

    And – just curious – what was the editors’ stand on the Trinity Toll Road? I was never clear… or I probably missed it.” is…

    a map of where certain Dallas media types live.

    Let’s be fair, though, this colorfully festive answer, complex enough in its presentation to evoke a thoughtful, chin-pulling response from even the most jaded, is by no means any less valid than the alternate answer to Bebe’s question, which of course would be the single word “hat”.

    In the next probing installment in pursuit of Bebe’s simple but somehow impossible to answer question, a map of those locales from which various media employees prefer to order pizza.

    Trey –

    I was looking for an answer like…

    Tim: for X, against Y
    Trey: for X, for Y
    Eric: against Y, against X

    … and so on.

    The map of your homes does not answer my question.

    I voted against the toll road. I’d vote against a taxpayer-owned hotel.

  5. The map shows who was for or against the Trinity project, and where they live. I don’t think the magazine has endorsed or condemned the hotel project. You’d have to ask Tim, Eric the Strong, and Wick individually.

  6. PS — I abstained from taking a position on the Trinity project.

  7. johnson says:

    Thanks. Why did you abstain from taking a position?

    The map shows, “how voting districts overall voted – not how individuals voted.” Interested in the two bald guys’ answer if they choose. Wick is spoken for.

  8. Johnson, I could tell you something smart aleck and snarky, but the truth is at the time I was neck deep in a story that took months of research and took an emotional toll on me, so I just didn’t care.

    Your honesty is appreciated and I’m glad you hit “backspace” instead of sending me a zinger. Restraint is the new black. LOL.

    Now, go get a beer and enjoy the weekend.
