Excellent Blog South Texas Chisme Teaches Lesson On How To Disagree Without Being Angry

An excellent and friendly Texas political blog is South Texas Chisme. This blog covers, among other places, Corpus Christi and Brownsville. 

A few weeks ago I took the position that Democrats should only support another Democrat for Speaker of the Texas House. I allowed myself to get into a nasty time-wasting exchange of comments on Burnt Orange Report. I let myself get angry which is always the wrong course. I also made some posts on my own blog about the subject and a few of the comments I got in reply were not so warm. 

South Texas Chisme did not agree with me on the Speaker’s race. Yet the blog linked to one of my posts. We also exchanged private e-mails where I was told I was wrong—But was not told that I was a jackass or that I loved Tom Craddick.

I don’t believe in Karma. The only way decent people get noticed is when someone points out that they are decent. South Texas Chisme is a good operation and worthy of your attention.

Also, I’ve looked up the word chisme. According to the Berlitz Spanish Pocket Dictionary it means “bit of gossip.”
