This story takes my breath away. How can this have been printed and the shameful Humboldt County system remain unchanged, untouched?
Nice timely coverage. We were leaving campus and saw the tape and ruckus. It's good to be able to find out what happened the very same evening.
I am sure you are wrong quite often but the real question is: have you ever thought you were wrong?
Like Rush Libaugh, you don't seem troubled by any obligation to make sense.
Not sure dissing the readers is a reasonable stance for an editor to take ("petty, vicious, censorious") since readership is the point.
Some critical or disappointed readers simply stop reading the publication without ever bothering to write a letter explaining why. Maybe it is the ones who hope to be heard, or who hope for improvement, who bother to write.
Congratulations on the awards but I hope they won't give you a bad case of hubris.
Interesting way to handle criticism there, Hank. I refer to the letter not the call; I haven't listened to that yet. But as for legit criticism (letter specifically objected to too much Hank, too little news), some editors seek to improve, and criticism from former readers could give a guy some direction.
