Check out Jim Carty’s blog Paper Tiger No More this morning for a real gem. JC received his share of nice emails (and the occasional call if you recall our interview) when he was a columnist for the Ann Arbor News. Of course most of that was friendly (at least local) fire from Wolverine fans.
Well, although Carty has hung ’em up at the News for quite a while now apparently he still gets the love. Today he posts an absolute beauty of an email he recently received, blasting him for his sweet 2002 ‘Green Giant’ column (predicting Tommy Amaker’s rise). Jim openly admits how horrible the column was and of course Carty later became one of Amaker’s harshest critics, to the point where he was advised by News brass to tone it down.
The email from reader Ben starts off with “Hey Queer,” and rocks out from there. Don’t mess with a blogger, man!
