Eavesdrop> Lamster Bashing Reprieve as Dallas Accepts its Architecture Critic

Since arriving in North Texas to take up the job of Dallas Morning News architecture critic, Mark Lamster has been under a trial by fire, suffering scrutiny and criticism for everything from his Yankee origin to his unsympathetic take on the city’s built environment. Well, local opinions seem to be warming a bit to the sharp-tongued scribe. In a recent piece in the Dallas Observer, Charles Schultz went so far as to praise how quickly Lamster has come to understand Big D’s development landscape and the insider track around its so-called zoning regulations. Schultz even showed a little contrition for a previous quip: “I apologize for calling him ‘Mark Lamster, New York Pinhead’ when he first showed up.”

    Charles Shultz wrote “Peanuts.” He’s dead. Jim Schutze called Mark Lamster a pinhead and now he has apologized. Maybe you should apologize to Jim Schutze for not doing the proper reporting. http://frontburner.dmagazine.com/2014/07/23/jim-schutze-changes-his-name-to-charles-schultz-and-decides-he-likes-mark-lamster-after-all/
