Furlough day

I know, I’m not being paid today, but I checked my e-mail at work to see what’s up.

I just got a letter to the editor, copied (of course) to every elected and appointed leader within the organization, calling for me to step down as editor. He’s enraged that I did an interview with a former child molester who is also a member of our collective profession.

Just a clue: I work for bleeding-heart, tree-hugging fuzzy-wuzzy types. And I did not tell everyone to love the guy I interviewed; I just did a story about how hard it is to commit a crime and move on with one’s life, how society imprisons you forever, even after you’ve done your time.

As far as I’m concerned, that reader only served to underscore my point about the HYPOCRISY that exists within our collective profession.
