On a Facebook post sharing Phil Faccenda’s excellent piece from yesterday, Angry Reader Dennis Granlie really let us have it.
He writes, “You really need to change the name of this blog to “Sore Losers’ Page.” You simply must accept that Rick lost the election and stop trying to litigate it time and time again! When you’re in a hole, the smart thing to do is quit digging.”
As further — actually, any — research on Granlie’s part would indicate, Faccenda’s column did not “litigate” the Rick Tryon/Tracy Houck/campaign finance fiasco or Tryon’s election loss. In fact, we have not written a single word about it in any of our other posts, nor will we. Granlie’s right; Houck won, Tryon lost, and that’s that.
But because Granlie’s post was so mean-spirited (not to mention inaccurate), we will indulge him this: for the next day, E-City Beat will be renamed, “Sore Losers’ Page.”
Maybe Granlie will be a little less angry.
