I appreciate Joseph Duarte as a writer. He’s readable and fair. And, in this instance, he’s wrong.
As has been previously explained to us UH diehards on more than one occasion, just because the newspaper’s name is the Houston Chronicle and it is published in Houston, Texas doesn’t mean that it owes any favorable quantity or quality of coverage to the University of Houston. OK. I get it. The Chronicle is not the Austin American-Statesman, and UH isn’t the University of Texas at Austin. - Fine.
But, that is a two way street. UH doesn’t owe any return phone calls or other responses to the Chronicle.
Sure, the lack of any response from UH makes Joseph Duarte’s job more difficult; and his fellow UT alums at the Chronicle expect him/pay him to write something. So, he did. Because there was no actual sports activity to write about, he authored an article that trashed the UH administration for not responding to him.
Now, there is still no actual sports activity to write about. So, let me suggest that Joseph Duarte use this time as an opportunity to rebuild that bridge to UH that he torched with his spiteful article. It would be a better use of his time than waiting in line for a coronavirus test.
