Just a reminder to come out and see me Saturday morning!!!

And I'm even linking to Hollihan!

Your humble Cracker has been invited to speak THIS Saturday at a Dutch Treat Luncheon sponsored by the Main Street Journal. It will be held at The Butcher Shop on Germantown Parkway just south of Walnut Grove from 11:30 A.M. to 12:45 P.M.

The topic is The Role of New Media (Internet & Blogging) in Memphis Politics, and I will be joined on the panel by Richard Thompson of Mediaverse, Tom Jones of Smart City Memphis, and ABC24/CW30's Cameron Harper.

It looks like a good time will be had by all, so come on out, grab a bite to eat, and listen to a great discussion!

I hope you say something about the difference between hidden biases and disclosed biases. I agree with almost none of his politcs, but I put much more faith in what Hollihan says than I do in that of many CA writers, simply because I know where he is coming from. When he is writing from bias, I know his bias well enough to get what I need out of his writing.

Similarly, you wear your politics on your sleeve, but you are one of the most reputable bloggers around. Thaddeus is biased against white people but that doesn't stop me from reading his blog.

Who has more credibility? The person whose bias is known, or the person who is hiding something from the reader? If old media needs to learn anything from new media, it's that.

God help Memphis when you get finished--or maybe I should say Buddha help the Bluffs when you don't bluff (grin). You'll do fine and we're all proud of you.

I hope some of your readers will come out with questions for our panel. We're proud to have pulled that one together and think it'll make for an informative lunch.

And if someone has ideas for future Dutch Treat Luncheons, or potential guests, please let us know. We really are committed to creating a place for dialogue and discussion.

I am sorry I will miss it, as I will be out of town, but I look forward to the post-meeting wrap-up.
