Re: “Osama bin Laden and Memorial? Huh?

Pam, I'm sorry to hear my blog post struck a nerve for you. Nonetheless, I appreciate you letting readers see it for themselves.

I would like to clarify one thing about my past employment. Your remark about me being "a former Gazetter who covered Memorial before being hired there" implies there was perhaps a conflict of interest in my landing here. Not sure if this was intended or not, but to the contrary, I took unconventional steps at the time to ensure there was no such conflict when I applied for this job. While not all reporters might have taken this step, I voluntarily recused myself from covering Memorial before I ever told Memorial of my interest in the job, or took a single step in the application process. I told the managing editor of my interest in the job when, for all I knew, Memorial might have disliked some of my past stories as much as you disliked this blog post.

Am I proud to be a part of Memorial? Yes. Did I do something questionable to get here? Absolutely not.

Criticism, for any writer, is par for the course, and if you don't like what I've written, I get it. But I feel like it's worth clarifying potential questions of character.
