In case you missed it, Jim Schutze predicted the future a few weeks ago. He said Steve Blow would write an “Aw, shucks, the Trinity Project is still wonderful” column. Steve Blow did just that (though a week past Schutze’s predicted deadline). Imagine, then, Schutze’s delight as he put up this post yesterday, pointing out how Blow’s column could have been better.
Here’s what I don’t understand: did Blow not read Schutze’s prognostication? Your city columnist should be reading the Observer‘s blog, right? Especially the posts that are about him. Because you can do that from Sunnyvale. Right? So how do you write that column about “doomers” and “gloaters” without mentioning by name the biggest gloater in the city, Jim Schutze — a guy who preemptively called you out for writing the very column you just turned in? I just don’t get it.
