The Formidable Gayle Reaves Fired From Fort Worth Weekly it did not cross my mind to think that the absence of Fort Worth Weekly's Editor-in-Chief would so quickly cause a noticeable deterioration in the usually impeccable editing in Fort Worth Weekly.
And then I picked up this week's Fort Worth Weekly, looked at the cover and saw that which you see here....
FOES V. TWRD.
I really do not think TWRD would have gotten past the eagle eyes of Ms. Reaves.
It was the other part of the cover article's title which had me more intrigued than the unfortunate typo.
"Has the Tarrant Regional Water District met its match?"
Which of the TWRD's, I mean, TRWD's many foes is this article gonna be talking about, I thought to myself.
Elsie Hotpepper? Mary Kelleher? Layla Caraway? Monty Bennett? Me?
Well, we can rule me out. Only me and two other people know I'm a foe of the TRWD.
I have not yet read the article in its entirety, just enough to get the gist, and to realize it is sort of a myriad of FOES v. the TRWD.
I was afraid this article was going to be sickening, with Fort Worth Weekly having succumbed to the bizarre TRWD party-line kool-aid that the Star-Telegram drinks and hop on the Kill the Evil Dallas Businessman (before he steals our precious Fort Worth water} Bandwagon.
I would direct you to a link to this week's Fort Worth Weekly cover article, but I have been told that that link does not yet exist. Apparently ever since the departure of Gayle Reaves updating the FW Weekly website has become a bit tardy.
But, I have to say, ever since the departure of Gayle Reaves, FW Weekly has been showing up by noon on Wednesday at my regular Albertsons source, rather than a day late.
I have no idea if there is any connection between timely FW Weekly arrivals and the Reaves departure. I suspect not....
UPDATE: I have now read the Fort Worth Weekly FOES V. TWRD article. Simply put, I do not think this article would have made it to print under Gayle Reaves' editorial eye without extensive editing.
