Al Martinez vs. Ken Reich

Al Martinez, LA Times columnist, discovers blogs and the miscreants that write them. Today, he’s found that Ken Reich at Take Back The Times had mocked him, and Martinez didn’t care for it. As Martinez has survived for 21 years at the Times, he might be grateful that anyone is still reading him, much less cares enough to pick on him.

Or maybe that’s his worry–in these days of drastic measures at the Times, anyone with any measurable readership is sure to stand out, and thus, be a candidate for downsizing. No tall poppies, etc.
