VERY WELL SAID
March 10, 2012 | 12:37 PM

FIRST OF ALL, I AGREE WITH THIS EDITOR. THEY WERE ONLY DOING THEIR JOB. I DID NOT SEE AN ATTEMPT BY THE L.G. NEWS TO TRASH ANYBODY.

SECONDLY, NO ONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR BEHAVIORS BUT OURSELVES. WE ARE ENTITLED TO OUR FEELINGS, AND WE ARE ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR HOW WE EXPRESS THOSE FEELINGS.

I ADMIT, I SAID MADE SOME INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS ABOUT MS. KAWALEC THAT I SHOULDN'T HAVE. I APOLOGIZED. MY ISSUE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CASE AT HAND, BUT WITH AN ISSUE THAT I HAD WITH THIS PERSON SEVERAL YEARS AGO. I WAS WRONG AND I ADMIT IT.

ON ONE HAND, SHE MAY NOT HAVE DONE THESE THINGS, BUT THEN AGAIN SHE PUT HERSELF IN A SITUATION, PROBABLY INADVERTENTLY, THAT MAKES HER LOOK GUILTY. WE ALL DO THIS FROM TIME TO TIME. I DON'T BELIEVE THIS WOMAN WOULD EVER INTENTIONALLY STEAL FROM ANYBODY. WE MAY HAVE HAD OUR DIFFERENCES, BUT I KNOW THIS WOMAN IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST CARING WOMEN I'VE MET. TRUE, I HAVE HAD NO CONTACT WITH HER IN OVER 16 YEARS, AND SHE MAY HAVE CHANGED. BUT I HIGHLY DOUBT IT. FOR ALL WE KNOW, THIS COULD BE A HUGE MISUNDERSTANDING.

ON THE OTHER HAND, WHILE I AGREE THAT THIS EDITOR IS DOING HER JOB IN REPORTING THE NEWS AND PEOPLE ARE ENTITLED TO MAKE THEIR OWN JUDGEMENT, I ALSO BELIEVE THAT IT IS NOT FAIR FOR PEOPLE TO START AUTOMATICALLY JUDGING SOMEBODY WITH DEFAMATORY COMMENTS, TRASHING THEIR NAME, AND BRINGING UP ISSUES THAT ARE IRRELEVANT TO THE CASE. TO ME, THAT IS CHILDISH.

I UNDERSTAND IN THE HEAT OF YOUR EMOTIONAL VENTING, PEOPLE MAY SAY ONE OR TWO THINGS. IT HAPPENS. LET IT GO, OR APOLOGIZE, AND MOVE ON. NO BIG DEAL. TO REPEATEDLY MAKE THESE TYPE OF COMMENTS IS JUST PLAIN ABUSIVE AND ONLY MAKES YOU LOOK WORSE THAN THE PERSON WHO'S NAME YOU ARE TRASHING. TRUST ME, I KNOW.

WHETHER SHE DID OR DIDN'T DO IT, LET THE COURTS DECIDE. LEAVE THE PAPER OUT OF IT, AND KEEP YOUR HATE TO YOURSELVES.

IN THE END, IT WILL ALL GET RESOLVED.

WARM THOUGHTS TO ALL OF YOU AND TO MS, KAWALEC AND HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.
