Hey, I don't mind if you use my stuff, just send some traffic my way (and click on some ads, will ya'?) I'm flattered that columnists like Indy Star's Susan Guyette consider me a must read but a little attribution would be nice. (Check out her "Restaurant Buzz" at the end. I'll leave it to regular readers to decide how familiar it seems. Thanks to a reader for the pointer.) The one new piece of news regarding what's replacing Mo's Loading Dock gives me the fear. Apparently, according to Guyette, "you'll recognize the name of the famous food outlet as soon as the deal is signed, sealed and delivered." "Famous food outlet" is not necessarily good news.
This is happened to me on so many occasions in the past I just gave of mentioning the fact. It's funny, though, now that the election is over all the local mainstream reporters are going on about how much the media and all the pundits missed the outcome of this year's Indianapolis mayoral election. Well, this blog and several others had the race pegged dead-on for quite some time. I've also not heard a single one of those mainstream reporters acknowledge the big role blogs had in this year's mayoral race, although some of the biggest beneficiaries of the bloggers this year are conveniently ignoring their role as well. It's the big elephant in the room none of them want to talk about for sure. So many of the local media were completely in bed with the Peterson administration and they skewed their reporting accordingly. They missed the outcome of this race so badly because they were reporting with their hearts instead of their minds.
A big hat tip to Ruth Holladay for catching Renee Wilmeth's story. I met Renee last year at one of RiShawn Biddle's roundtable sessions back when he was still speaking to me. She's a wonderful woman with a great food blog.
