Criticism, blog post by John Hoff
For a couple of years, this blog has more or less razzed IBNN blogger Don Allen about not getting to the bottom of the story about the mysterious death of Major Topps, as Allen had publicly promised.
Now with "ceasefire breaking out all over" in the North Minneapolis blog wars, this blogger wishes to acknowledge that Allen recently...
...posted a video on YouTube which features an unsolicited phone call from a "Pastor Nate Allen" which airs purported facts about Major Topps. Click here to view that video on YouTube.
I will also say that one of the reasons I razzed Don Allen so much is, frankly, I figured Don Allen could get to the bottom of that story and I figured I couldn't. And I truly believed somebody needed to get that story and, in effect, lance that boil and drain out the poison pus of an awful, deeply rooted issue in the community.
Therefore...I kept pushing and razzing Don Allen to do something I couldn't do myself. Just blog politics as usual.
But today, with Don Allen politely drawing my attention to the YouTube video he posted on September 1, it's only right that I acknowledge Don Allen managed to get something, ANYTHING, ANYBODY talking about what happened with Major Topps.
I do seem to recall that Paul Walsh of the Star Tribune told me, long ago, that if anybody would speak "on the record" about Major Topps the Star Tribune would interview that person.
Star Tribune? The ball is in your court.
