Sticking to his gut?Call me crazy, but I don't think the Dallas Morning News understands blogging:
Barack Obama impressed me yesterday by sticking to his gut and picking Pittsburg to win the Super Bowl.
If the author of that is actually on the staff of the Morning News, well, God help them. If he's not and, rather, the Morning News simply allows anyone to post anything under the banner of its "Trail Blazers" blog, well, again, God help them.

The dude who wrote that garbage is named “Gromer Jeffers, Jr.”.....you can’t always judge a cat by his name, but I think w/“Gromer” we can make an exception.

According to the sidebar, he covers local government and politics. He’s a staff writer. Run for your lives!
As an aside…wouldn’t the rapid disintegration of the newspaper industry signal that the few left in the biz would be the cream of the crop? I now have to assume that’s wrong. I feel the same way about seeing bad actors continuing to get work - aren’t there hundreds of great actors who just need a break while Keanu Reeves has built quite a nest egg on inexplicable talents?

He’s right about Rooney supporting Obama. He doesn’t seem to get that Obama is a south sider though…
