For those who can't get enough Schutze talk -- and by that, I mean Schutze -- may we direct your browser elsewhere, if only for a moment? Swell. Because over on FrontBurner, I've discovered the name of my first novel: "Somebody was deep throating Jim Schutze." Meanwhile, over on The Dallas Morning News' editorial blog, Rod Dreher, who's clearly the Robin to Jim's Batman, writes that Jim is "the Jeremiah Wright of Dallas newspapering: an often spellbinding rhetorician who takes an interesting kernel of truth -- in this case, the sleazy shenanigans of the Shaws -- and spins a whole crazypants conspiracy scheme out of it." He's referring to Jim's column in this week's paper, by the way. And for the record, Jim's wearing these today, so maybe he's got a point. --Robert Wilonsky
