While I was out of town a sentencing came down in the Kurt Heintz case.
In case you don't remember, this was the story I basically couldn't get past the timid editors and wimpy lawyers 2 1/2 years ago.
So I guess I'm vindicated, but in the meantime an important story was squeezed off the pages at a time that it would have been a significant scoop and a window into the coming housing meltdown.
It was a piece that screamed to be reported and published. Shame on those who squashed it like a bug.
I did have one editor ally in that battle for that story. By the way, she was also "downsized."
