I’m leaving for a show tomorrow and Debbie’s coming back from Europe the day after. Hopefully she had a marvelous time.
So, now she will be blogging alone for a bit.
Stef (firstname.lastname@example.org) sent this article to me. I read it and became indignant in really complex ways. If I wasn’t leaving I’d seriously blog about it – check it out!
William Murphy, a retired policeman, was being interviewed by the New York times for his anti immigration bill views.
“I am the ugliest man on earth,” she (the reporter”) said he told her. Ã¢â‚¬Å“One of my teeth is missing.Ã¢â‚¬Â Preston sent the photographer anyway. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have a beauty standard at The New York Times, and here was this man who expressed himself very eloquently,Ã¢â‚¬Â she said.
The Times did use his photo in the article, although less prominently than others.
And then apparently all hell broke out in the blogosphere.
