Sometimes, in a lame attempt at humor, I paint groups of people with an overly broad brush. I owe a dear friend an apology for a May 23rd post “Mistakes we have made”. My friend is a real estate agent and, quite rightly, she took offense at my insulting comments about her profession, pointing out that it was simply not fair of me to cast dispersions on all for the sins of a few. Looking back at this post I can see her point–it was inflammatory and juvenile.
To the list of “Mistakes we have made” I can now add a lapse of journalistic ethics. Please accept my apologies.
I’ve re-edited the original post to better represent our experience, minus the hurtful rhetoric.
