The Dallas Morning News made Rudy Bush a columnist a few months back, and while I always enjoyed his work as the paper's city hall reporter, I wasn't sure how he would do when freed from the "gotta see both sides" nature of his previous gig. I was dead wrong. Whether or not you agree with his column about the NRA and Open Carry Texas, I think you'd agree he does exactly what (I think, anyway) a great columnist should do: demonstrate a clear-eyed grasp on the issue at hand, pick a side, and argue that side eloquently. Plus -- and this is especially helpful, given the continued presence of Steve Blow -- he consistently writes about actual issues, and not just quota-killing give-up topics. GOOD JOB, RUDY.
