*** It’s been quite a day at the Lancaster Newspapers! A front-page apology for a racist cartoon and the announcement of a huge change in their editorial page and an Open Letter from the NAACP on their new editorial page. Thank you NAACP for (finally) loudly and firmly stepping up and demanding an apology and change!
I have personal commitments this afternoon, but will come back to all of this tomorrow! Wow! How much change will there really be?
Just a reminder from this morning that the link to donate to Annika Horn, Sunday’s stabbing victim, is here.
** James Burchik, the nasty, racist New Era Editorial Page editor, has apparently been fired or taken retirement. His name and picture have been deleted from LNP’s employee directory. Click here for LNP’s apology for Burchik’s decision last Saturday. Unbelievable!

HEARTS FOR ANI –
Annika Horn is a beautiful soul and has been a wonderful, faithful friend for the entirety of my adult life. She was assaulted in her own home on Saturday, September 6th, nearly mortally wounded and is currently in intensive care in an undisclosed location. She has undergone several surgeries to repair the terrible damage done to her body, and will require much more specialized medical care in the months and weeks to come.
