It has been quite a day. There are reports that some lowlife but connected cad is spreading STDs to women in the Lancaster County Courthouse. Oh, my! Never in my wildest dreams…
This site will publish tomorrow and then go on Labor Day vacation until Wednesday, September 4 when daily publishing will resume.
* The below is the full comment that came into my site on August 24. I picked portions of it and responded in blue in the email shown below. Despite that, three of the comments under the “You Can’t Stop Crazy” post yesterday are from her and she sent three more which were not approved. I apologize and any further comments I recognize as hers (“OnTheBeachByNoon,” “PAisCorrupt,” etc. ) will not be published.
Becky, Please remove my report from yesterday, my name and all other identifiable references to me from your site.
I reported on my observations regarding the RTK issue in good faith because I believe the public has a right/need to know.
However, I do not want any association with a website or any posters who engage in rumor-mongering and cyberbullying as I read here today and, had I known that is the purpose of your blog, I would have never participated in any way.
Similarly, I do not want the solid journalistic reputation I have earned over three decades of hard work sullied by association.
I am mortified by some of these baseless comments I have read and personally embarrassed to be associated with it in any way.
I stand behind everything I wrote and put my name to. I always have and always will.
However, I did so in good faith and with the best of intentions, never imagining the discourse would devolve into such a despicable example of cyber-bullying of a person who, to my knowledge, has absolutely nothing to do with the subject I was addressing.
I have played no role in the subsequent discussion and I wish to completely disassociate myself from your website.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but I do expect your immediate attention to this very serious matter.

AN OUT OF
In absolute frustration and after months, actually years, of interactions with this person, I sent her the above email response to a comment she sent into this site just two days ago. And then the article to the left went up and I said I recognize that name and that situation sounds familiar (click here).
Yup, Stephen Kirchner and the woman from above.
Please check back later today.
