You should have never put yourself in this position in the first place, but kay sera sera; you stepped down, and thank you.
I truly hope, in this idealist heart of mine (because I'm not a real journalist) that you WANTED to put Richardson first, and if there is some little turd blossom (*endearing*-what I call my bff, btw) of truth to that, I hope it would prevail. (why do I feel like I'm casting out demons?)
I have not completely written you off, ole' rapist glasses, it's just that I am very, increasingly, horrifically, disappointed by the choices you choose to make....in eye wear and beyond.
Either way, this started off as a thank you note and I will end it with that.
Thank you Steve for taking back the DRMC even though it is sloppy seconds (or even fifths, really) now.
