Is Roy Bragg the next Mike Royko?

I got an interesting Tweet from Roy Bragg, the San Antonio Express blogger in chief, about the need for readers and page views. Frankly, it's sad that a writer like Bragg has issues with page views. Roy is the funniest writer since the late Mike Royko graced the newspapers in Chicago. (For those of you who have never lived in the Midwest, Royko was the author of the famous book "Boss.) It's time for the editorial leadership at the Express News to recognize his draw and promote the heck out of him.

But, what do you expect from the same management team that dropped Doonesbury for one week because Trudeau correctly picked Obama as the winner. Note to Express News editors: "Get some cojones and push Roy." It will increase your readership/page views/advertising revenue.
