Oh Me, Oh My

The New York Times has seen fit to weigh in on the mayoral race in Sacramento.

And how do we fare at the hands of the journalistic elite? We're a "cowtown" with a "lackluster image." Gosh, I would expect that sort of thing from the Los Angeles Times, but New York? I may just head for home right now to begin my recovery.

An excerpt:

Overshadowed by state politics and a high-profile governor, Sacramento cannot seem to shake its reputation as a cow town, despite being the capital of California.

And it is the city’s lackluster image — as much as taxes or budgets or crime — that has been a recurring theme in the bitter and still unresolved race for mayor between Kevin Johnson, the former professional basketball star, native son and local businessman, and Heather Fargo, a career public servant seeking her third term as mayor.

Well, no. That's not quite right. But who am I, lonely blogger, to stand up to the mighty New York Times?
