We certainly hit a nerve this week when we published a piece on how riots are covered in Austin. Internet trolls aside, we're glad that some folks are having a frank conversation about something we think is crucial to cultural fabric of our town.

Read on to see what else people were talking about.

1. We examine how two similar incidents were covered in local media.

2. Dale Dudley talks about why he came to Austin — and why he stayed.

3. Tacodeli is expanding with two new Austin locations.

4. A photo of two Austin firefighters rescuing a dog from this week's devastating flood has gone viral. And it's adorable!

5. Coming full circle, a comment left in this story about a North Texas teenager with special needs who was bullied prompted us to rethink how we cover this sensitive issue.
