The Star scribe at the centre of the latest Ford Family Fiasco has an interesting piece about his run-in with the fist-waving Chief Magistrate. It’s worth a read.
What struck me is the reporter’s discomfort at being the story, as opposed to writing the story (cf. the very last line). To me, that’s a sign of a good journalist. (It’s why I wasn’t a good one, by the by: I like Plimptonian, Lester Bang-ish first-person stuff. I find it more fun to read and write. My web site, now in year 12 – and my journals, now in year 40 – are ample proof of that.)
Anyway, I digress, per usual. Personally, I wonder if there is an explanation for all of this insanity continually surrounding famille Ford, one that would almost make me feel sympathetic to the guy (almost).
