If you’ve been paying attention, you know the name Rod Dreher. The conservative writer once sat on the Dallas Morning News’ editorial board. He wrote the books Crunchy Cons and The Little Way of Ruthie Leming. Last month, he published The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation, which the Times has called “the most discussed and most important religious book of the decade.” The New Yorker just put up a 7,500-word profile of Dreher. You might need to save that one for tonight.
For a quicker read, go check out this piece by Jim Schutze, wherein all his conspiracy theories about Mayor Mike Rawlings and the West Dallas land grab are proven true. Those (like me) who enjoy a good media fight will love the smackdown that Schutze puts on his former colleague Robert Wilonsky. Good stuff.
