Steep and Flat at National Review

Ok, admit it.  This is a great cover.  Kevin D. Williamson’s article about Texas and our supposed anti-California economic miracle is, well, less than great.  I wonder if he’s ever been here?  Or heard of Howard Jarivs?  These seem like reasonable questions for an editor to have asked.  If Kevin D. has indeed traveled the Lone Star State, he missed the fact that Levis aren’t TX, they’re CA.  Wranglers are TX.  And I’m pretty sure there’s no apostrophe in either, either.

  1. Kevin Williamson says:

    I was born and raised in Lubbock and spend a fair amount of time in Texas. Levi’s spelling is cq. (It’s on the label, for pete’s sake, not too hard to check.) Wrangler jeans are just Wrangler. I don’t see many people wearing them in my parts of Texas, but your mileage may vary.

    Did you mean Howard Jarvis?

    You’re 0 for 4 by my count. But I’m glad you liked the cover.

    Yours, &c.,
    Kevin D. Williamson
